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!

As always Jay, very nice! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.

Is the Motif lit up at night?


Jay Albert said...

Same to you Sharon & family...Merry Christmas!
No the Motif is not lit up. Rockport has some strange by-laws and one of them prohibits outdoor lighting. It's ok for Christmas lights for your home but they strickly control spotlights and completly prohibit internally lit signs.

I love the one of the dinghies with snow in them. They're all terrific.

So there's not even a spotlight shining on the wreath? No christmas lights in town? So I guess there won't be any night photography of the motif! Maybe I could get out there and hold up a flashlight while you take some shots. Deal?

The town I live is pretty strict as well. A car dealer put up a neon sign and within a few months a law was passed prohibiting them. Wish they had passed that law long before that stupid eye sore of a sign went up! Most signs and lights in our town tend to be on the small side which is fine by me. I must be getting old ; )

Thanks Kathleen!
Sharon, Yes downtown Rockport has Christmas lights! An impressive Christmas tree is lighted at Dock Square and all the lamp posts have Christmas lights.
