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 got lucky this year! Santa found out I try to capture him every year and this time he called me! He said he loved my pictures and he gave me a time when I could photograph him close! He told me to be near St. Ann's Church and he'll come in low and slow down. True to his word there he was! He said Cape Ann is one of his favorite stops and loves to scout around before before midnight waiting for the children to go to sleep before he delivers the gifts.

Around the Waterfront

 It was a week of battling a bad head cold( not covid related) so getting out was spotty at best. I stayed close to home and kept the truck warm.

Sad looking dory outside the Gloucester High School Vocational shops.

"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"!
