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!

Re-doing the Night !

Many times when I compile and edit images for posting I miss certain details. These days with the use of HPS (High Pressure Sodium) bulbs in street lighting, the orange glow they omit can really ruin a good night time shot. looking for ways to overcome that orange glow effect and enforce the true colors, I finally found the answer. The waterfront is really magical at night and besides the waterfront, I threw in Fenway Park from a game I went to last summer.

You sure do have some nice night time images Jay! Especially down by the docks.

Maybe someday I'll learn to shoot better at night. My shots leave a lot to be desired.

Thanks Frank! Sharon...You probably know that a tripod is a must....then try out different settings. Slow shutter speeds to an open shutter. All the above images except the sunset and Fenway Park were with a tripod. Fenway's lighting is fantastic!

"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"!
