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!

Another Week of Randomness!

 It was a week of yard work trimming back the back yard hedges that grew to at least 9' tall. My wife and niece were on the clippers while I tractored the brush to the neighborhood compost pile in the woods behind my house.

A boat high in the brush!

Ever Changing Sky and Visitors!

 The coastal cruise ship American Constitution made her first visit the Gloucester for the season. And a Cardinal greeted me as I pulled into my driveway.

Beginning of May!

 I just mowed the lawn as the grass was coming in as clumps. But first I had to remove the snow plow , tire chains and weights. Spring is now official in my book. Here's the photos of the past week.

A classic on the Fish Pier!

Two gull on Guard, guard rail that is.

"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"!
