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!

Schooner Time!

I wasn't going to take the boat out today. I only went down to the boat to fuel up and get her ship shape for the weekend festivities. Then as I looked over the houses of Rocky Neck I saw the masts of the Canadian schooner "Bluenose II" looming above them. That did it, lower the engine and cast off the lines with camera in hand. Once I rounded the Railways I aimed my camera at the schooner and click....nothing! The camera wasn't working! What could it be I thought, I had charged the battery. The LED display was flashing "CHA"...That must mean the battery charge is low. Oh no I hope it's not time for a new battery, this one is hard to come by. You just can't walk into a store and buy it off the shelf. A little of that sick feeling started to take over, not now....not during the Schooner Festival! I had spun out to the outer harbor and decided to come in. As I was passing the Paint Factory I finally discovered what the problem was. The memory card wasn't fully installed! Dummy!

Great shots, Jay! Doh! I've done the same thing with the memory card.

Jay Albert said...

Thanks Steve but I still feel like a dummy! You would figure "CHA" means charge,but looking at the manual it refers to the memory card....go figure!

Nice work Jay!

"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"!
