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!

Life & Death Along the Waterfront !

Good Harbor Beach,Harbor Cove and Pirates Lane. It was sad to see a full grown harbor seal dead. There are lacerations arounds it's neck area, possibly from a propeller strike.And I did report it to the New England Aquarium. Such is life along the waterfront.

Hi Jay,
Love your photos. I check them everyday.It was nice to meet you at the Russo Fundraiser at the Theatre.

It's sad to see a fellow mammal meet it's end.
I Love the last picture of the pilings it looks like a painting. Great Job!
I started a blog for my Artwork and Photos and have some pictures of Seals lounging on the rocks off Cressy's Beach a few weeks ago.

Thanks Paul,That last "pic" I added later. Originally it was over-exposed,I had the wrong setting on the camera. Later I added a "glow" feature to it then adjusted the brightness & contrast.
I'm also going to add your link in my links section.

"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"!
