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!

Back on the Water!

 A week before the St. Peter's Fiesta I launched my boat and took a ride and here are the images. But while heading down the street to take photos of Gloucester's July 3rd fireworks  I dropped my camera! My 18mm/55mm lens jammed and my 70mm/300mm lens is also broke. I've ordered a 18mm/270mm lens that should cover all my photo needs. About an hour ago as I typed I fixed the 18mm/55mm lens which I use about 70% of the time.

St. Peter's Fiesta 2024!

 This year was a challenge, my zoom lens bit the dust and getting close up photos of the Greasy Pole was just about impossible. I had to do with my 35mm lens.

"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"!
