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!

Along the Annisquam !

These are a collection from over the past few years of my travels along the Annisquam River. The Annisquam River is a tidal river that makes a large portion of Cape Ann an island. Boating traffic is congested in the summer and the boat speed limit of 5 mph is strickly enforced. The Blynman Bridge is one of the busiest bridges in the world with an average of 10,000 openings per year!

The next to the last picture is next to perfect! Nice shots Jay!

I also think the one of the couple swimming in the water is very endearing. A photo, given the chance, they would surely love to have.

Sharon, that elderly couple were lucky it was me approaching! They were in the middle of the channel and I slowed down to a crawl to slow down the boats behind me! I had just put my camera down when I saw them. One boat tried to pass me and I turned and cut them off. The guy was about to give me the one fingered salute then he sheepishly stopped when he saw why!

"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"!
