The Japanese defense forces couldn't stop Godzilla.....I captured the beast!
Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester, Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. For that reason artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years, they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

From Gloucester to Boston!

This post is a little different. I had little time to edit photos due to the World Series and those amazing damage doing Red Sox!

Notice the Red Sox red lights atop the Beauport Hotel!
 World Champs just 26 miles away as the gull flies!
 Storm clouds over Boston
 A creek fly by.
 Sunrise reflections.
 Gull flies over the Bass Rocks sunrise tree.
 Lone beach walker.
 A Good Harbor Beach sunrise.

Different Shades of Gloucester!

Every week I usually think of a theme for my next post and go out and shoot it. This week I had no theme in mind but once I gathered this weeks photos there it was. Many of the same views but different days at different times with different weather.

 Seas battering the Boulevard.

 A few seconds later an airliner rises over Boston!

 All the leaves are gone, but the sky is blue!

 Another day, another sunrise.
 And yet another day.
  Further back.
 Gulls on a rock watch the rising sunburst!

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
