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!

Crew Saved And Boat Saved !

Working the sea can be rewarding and dangerous. Since 1623 Gloucestermen have suffered the perils of the mighty ocean to bring food and a paycheck home. Two men are lucky to be alive and their vessel is also fortunate. It's very rare that both their vessel and their lives were brought home to live and work again!

That Neptune sign is both hilarious and appropriate.

LOVE the seal.

I had just got back into my truck and backing up when I saw it. I rolled the window down and took it. There it was stuck in a pile of snow on the edge of the wharf....I was laughing too!

I’m so glad we don’t have to post another sad post.

Hey Jay, that new lens is giving good results. Your first gull is a Black-headed gull. Excellent shot! He's an uncommon visitor here in the winter. The gull below the Harbor seal is our Great Black-backed gull, first winter. We have bazillions of those!

Jay Albert said...

Me too Steve! The lense is working out ok. I'm still getting used to it and the servos. The seal was a good distance away and with the low light at the time I think the lense is going to be a keeper! And ya bazillions of gulls, one almost "bombed" me...I moved just in time!

I always enjoy looking at the visions you bring us from Gloucester. Glad the men were safe. Looks like the dingy isn't so lucky. And the harbor seal is too cute!

That Steve, he really knows his gulls!


"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"!
