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!

Fall Sunrise and Sunset!

 Being under the weather(no not covid) I had little chance to get out and shoot but managed these. I  also added a couple of old shots from 2009 that I came across in my files.

Bass Rocks sunrise.

Look close to the left, a lone fisherman!
Here he is again.

Gloucester and Nature!

I didn't have the time to shoot as much as I wanted this past week but here is what I did get.

I've been seeing this 3 legged coyote the last few years and finally got close enough for a few shots, camera shots that is.

I call him "Three Pete"
Bass Rocks Sunrise Tree.
The sun rises over the Atlantic.

Lots of surfers!

October Sky!

 More sunrises and a collection of left over Gloucester Schooner Festival shots.  In the meantime I wore out my download cable which allows me to transfer the images from the camera to the computer. Considering how long I had it and the thousands of times I've used it the cable held up well beyond what should be expected.

Morning Face of Good Harbor Beach & A Golden Lobster!

 It never fails no matter the day Good Harbor Beach changes with the sky and tides.

"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"!
