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!

Time for a Career Change ?

Being laid off is never easy,30+ years in QC/QA is a long time but these are the sign of the times and I'm another victim. It's happened to me once before back 22 years ago,on a Friday the 13th of all days. At each company I've worked for I've worn "many hats" and that's an education I will be always grateful for. Some say it's the "boot in the ass" I need to kick start a buisness in photography. My mind is gearing up on the possibilities. On the bright side.....I won't need my steel toe least for now. My feet are on vacation!

Aw Jay, that's just awful. I'm sorry. It sounds like you are a fairly experienced guy who isn't afraid of trying something new.

This economy is so frustrating. How I wish there was some way to turn it around and quick!

Yes, it might be time to look into photography as a form of making a living. You have some wonderful images! My best to you.

Here's to better days!
Hang in there.

I wish you all the luck, and yes, you're photos are the best and most interesting ones I view on the web. That's part scenery but a bigger part photographer. You've got a good eye and know how to use them there cameras.

"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"!
