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!

Gloucester's Greatest Fear and the Call to Action!

 I had just got home from my overnight shift and was walking the dog. I could hear sirens streaming along East Main St. and when I got in the house I heard over the scanner police were blocking off Highland St. and Gerring Road.  That's where Beacon Marine Basin is located. It's a large wharf where a collection of additions created a large "L" shaped building. Besides being home to many pleasure craft it also contains many apartments. Over the years the building has sunk, along the street side trucks used to be able to enter two loading docks when I was a kid. The height of those doors from the street is now half of where they were. The Gloucester Fire Department and surrounding fire departments did an outstanding job fighting a stubborn fire, especially considering the age and layout of this meandering structure! At the time I posted this there were no reports of injuries.

Hooking up. Note the red doors, When I was a kid trucks were able to back inside!

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"!
