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!

Clear then Cloudy and a Great Fire Stop!

 The week started almost cloudless and as usual this time of the season rain. Early in the week I hear over the scanner a house fire down the street. Workers from Palazola Brothers Landscaping were working next door and spotted a small fire on the side of a house. Quick reporting by one of the employees and quick work by the Gloucester Fire Dept. prevented a tragedy.

Fire apparatus lined up on East Main Street.

Looking for fire extension.

Getting Her Ready!

 That time of year when it's time to get the boat ready. I took off the shrink wrap and added a spray shield. Much more to do. In the meantime Pics I took during the colder than normal week.

The "oversized "Mulligan" name is coming off.

"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"!
