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!

A Winter Blast !

The snow started falling at 1:20AM and at last check it looks like the storm is taking it's sweet time getting out of here. My snowblower was having trouble in reverse but I managed. Later while taking photos out my drivers side window, the window refused to go back up! I don't know if snow & ice got inside and did something, but a minute later and about 1/2 of snow on my shoulder it finally worked and went back up.

I've been waiting for pictures! So good to see them! How much snow did you get Jay? We only had about 3". Rather disappointing.

"jammies" Kathleen....I'm still in my wet jeans! Sharon, with all the wind it's hard to gauge. But I did measure 14" atop our vehicles about 4 hours before the snow stopped. My front yard has waves of drifts but my back yard it's almost knee deep!

Merry Christmas Kathy!
And I did find out what was wrong with the snowblower and fixed it! I went back out for more snow removal when I discovered the clutch linkage cable had worked it's way loose. Thank goodness, no more heavy pushing & tugging!

"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"!
