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!

It Got Me !

I can't remember when the last time I've been hit with a cold this bad but it's here now! It started off with a sore throat late saturday afternoon. I've had sore throats before but that was in my football coaching days. This time I've been silenced! And then when sunday arrives so does the head congestion with the stuffy nose and head aches. Now I got the blurry vision and trying to type this is an adventure! Last night I kidded my wife by telling her I wasn't going in to work tommorrow. When I woke up this morning, that line must of stuck in my mind....I almost called in sick! Here I am still unemployed looking for work about to call in sick! I must be sick!
Back to this post. These images are ones I never posted from various times and themes. Some I just plain missed while others at the time I didn't think I could correctly align. And a few that just didn't fit a particular theme.

"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"!
