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!

Early Sunset !

With much of my day "up the line" I missed what was a perfect day for scenic photography. And with the sun going down early this time of year I headed down to the Boulevard to catch the Fishermen's Memorial Statue and surrounding area in a different light.

Memorial tablets!

This gull got in my way!

Geez, why didn't you say "hi"? LOL I was down by the Fisherman statue about the same time you were!

Jay Albert said...

I didn't see you! Probably because I was staring at the sun! Belated HI Kathleen!!!

Well I didn't see either of you! Maybe that's because I wasn't in Gloucester in the first place. Hee hee . . .

It was a beautiful sunset tonight! I wished I could photograph it but there were prior commitments so that's the way it goes. Glad you caught it Jay!

Jay Albert said...

Thanks Sharon! Actually I'm kicking myself. About 30-40 minutes later I was walking the dog with no camera near my house when an increadable orange sunburst shot staight up to the heavens and I didn't have my camera.

A New England Life said...

I saw that here too Jay! It almost looked like there were 2 suns. Yup, you should have caught that ; )

Frank said...

Great shots Jay. I love that one with the bell and the Paint Factory in the back ground. This is what I mean about your photogaphy. It makes me look at things a little differently. I have never seen the Paint Factory from that angle before...Awesome!

Jay Albert said...

Thanks Frank! I didn't plan it, I just looked over my shoulder as I headed towards my truck,saw it and thought it was interesting.

"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"!
