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!

Red-Breasted Merganser !

I never saw this kind of sea duck until a few weeks ago. Probably because they are winter ducks and until this year I never got to get out during the day.I just call them "punk ducks" and I think the name fits. I threw in a gull resting,I was all around this gull clicking away at the "punk duck". As close as two feet and the gull didn't bat an eye!

As I was going through a couple shots I took at the beach recently, turns out there is a pair of Hooded Mergansers out there in the water! They couldn't be seen with the naked eye but once I enlarged the photo, sure enough, there they were. Along with a Common Eider. Wish I could have seen them up close though.

FYI these are male Red-breasted Mergansers, cool to catch them vocalizing. Cheers!

Thanks! I have trouble with bird names!

"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"!
