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!

Plan "B" !

Plan "A" with photographer Sharon Lowe on board was to catch the tall ships leaving Boston to Halifax,N.S.,with favorable winds they decided to head due east. Too far for my boat,actually too far to be pounded by mounting seas so we concentrated closer to shore. Here's photos I took from today and a few from the past week.

So what's up with that grass roof anyway? I took pictures of it but didn't know what the heck was going on up there.

The Schooner on the horizon picture should be a painting! It's beautiful! Can't believe you don't run out of things to photograph Jay.

I was looking at some photos I took last week and saw what I thought was mold on the roof from all the rain we've been getting. I found out later sod was actually installed! They also installed it on a warehouse across the harbor. Both buildings are owned by Americold,they are freezer warehouses,cold storage. You were here and only saw a glimpse. It's fluid scenery around here in more ways than one!

"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"!
