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!

I absolutely love your pictures. I can't get enough of them. I fell in love with that area on a visit to see where Cecelia Beaux lived. It's a bit cold for me, but I really enjoyed the area. Blessings, Janet

You were really out and about that day! Plenty of random yet interesting images.

Plenty of snow to photograph this morning!

Jay Albert said...

Thanks JKW!
Sharon...What snow? All we got is rain! So far.

I noticed that on the radar. It's too bad. Snow sure would be pretty in Gloucester for Christmas.

I missed these, Jay, they are great.

If you are ever out on Rocky Neck you should stop in Robert Gruppe's studio and take a photo for JKW --- Robert has a gorgeous, ornate sideboard in there that belonged to Cecelia Beaux.

"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"!
