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 Over Gloucester! Merry Christmas!

 I was worried this year and the way 2020 has been anything could happen. But this Christmas I got lucky, really lucky! A big storm is rolling in with high winds and heavy rain and figured the visibility would not allow me to "capture" Santa by camera. But though it's now becoming windy the rain held off. I saw Santa circling around Gloucester waiting for the kids to fall asleep.

Snow and Lights!

 We had our first big snow fall of this season and it was a big one for this time of year. About 15" fell on Cape Ann. On Sunday night we went for a Christmas light ride.

Good Harbor Beach, calm before the storm.

Run dog run.

I removed this section of fence to get the lawn tractor to the driveway.

Snow, Fog, Sun, Lights and a Grinch!

 We had just about everything this past week. I took many images and it's starting to look a lot like Christmas. For this post I'm omitting the captions and let the pictures saw the words.


"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"!
