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!

Colors, "Codzilla" and Lost & Found !

This is a combination of some images I took back in June and more foliage and "Codzilla"! High speed and rock & roll is what the "Codzilla" is all about. She gives her passengers a high speed thrill ride in Boston Harbor during the summer months.

Hi Jay , That first picture of the granite arch is on the way to Magnolia isnt it? If thats the one I'm thinking of why do you think its there?Did people skate there at one time or do you think it may have another purpose? Just wondering

Codzilla is pretty cool! My husband and I were checking out the website and we thought it looked like something fun to do on a warm summers day with the kids. I'm assuming it winters over in Gloucester?

Frank, that's the arch at Buswell Pond. I believe it was once owned as part of a private estate and I think it's now maintained by the Ravenswood Park trustees.
And Sharon,Yes...."Codzilla" winters here. It's at the Rocky Neck Marine Railways.

"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"!
