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!

Amazing Mother Nature!

 A powerful storm crossed the USA and by the time it got here it was a tempest of rain high winds and a turbulent sea. 

Calm before the storm!

Santa Over Cape Ann!

 I got lucky again, clear skies for Santa's arrival and was able to capture him and his team of reindeer. And Rudolph's nose is as bright as ever!

North Cape Ann!

 I hadn't taken one shot the entire week so mid Sunday morning I decided to take a ride around Cape Ann and stop in Rockport, Lanesville and Annisquam, with a few Gloucester shots thrown in.

First Snow of the Season!

 It had to happen sooner or later, this year some could say a little late but now that I think of it I may be to blame! With the Patriots off on Sunday playing Monday night I figured it's a good time to put the tire chains on my tractor. About 3 hours later the snow began to fall!

"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"!
