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!

Santa Buzzing the Gloucester Sky! Merry Christmas!

One of my most difficult subjects to photograph is Santa flying in his sleigh. He is so fast and my camera capabilities are pushed to the limit. One second there he is going in one direction then poof, he's gone. Then in a few seconds later here he comes from another direction. If it wasn't for Rudolph's bright red nose I never would have seen him.

Merry Christmas everyone!

There he is over Kent Circle!
 Santa passing over downtown!
 Passing over Harbor Cove he came very close!
 There he goes over Stacy Boulevard!
 Passing over the Fishermen's Memorial he's headed out to sea and to who knows where!

Gloucester Light!

Sunrise is is becoming my favorite time to shoot. It's one thing to face the sunrise but another to have the sunrise at my back. At my back the subject looks rich and colorful.

 Gulls and City Hall.
 The twin blue spires of Our Lady of Good Voyage Church.
 Daybreak over the city.
 Wind turbines loom above.
 Sailor Stan's
 Blackback gull calling out.
 Good Harbor Beach
 Sunrise over Bass Rocks.
 Hole in the clouds.
 Morning sunburst.
 Niles Beach
 Boston and a column of vapor on a cold morning.
 Sun rises of the Fishermen's Memorial.
 The setting sun.

"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"!
