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!

When A Storm Goes Away! !

After a morning of heavy rain and winds the sun came out along with warm 70 degree temps. I went over to the Breakwater to catch the surf and with not a soul around it felt like I was the last man on earth. The sounds of the waves crashing down on the rocks was deafening. The first thing you hear is a low rumble of the smaller stones rolling around under the water's surface. Then with a mighty crash, the sound of a thunderstorm as the waves crash down!

"S.S. Mellon III" surrounded!

I'm being watched!

Dog Bar Breakwater!

Big wave approaching!

Big wave!


Wet Breakwater!

White water!

Rough seas!

Gulls scatter!

The gulls just can't find a dry spot to hang out!

"S.S. Mellon III" and a frenzy of hungry gulls!

Hammond Castle!

Gloucester from behind my house!

The day is done!

Thanks "bowsprite"! Ya...those swans can pack a mean punch! They are managable, just don't try to take away their Goldfish crackers!

I like the Swan shot too! Kinda of prehistoric looking though. LOL!

These Gull shots are awesome! I like the view of Boston in the background of the SS Melon. You sure do capture some great moments Jay.

"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"!
