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!

Boy It's Cold Out !

Middle of the day and it's 23 degrees out. Not too bad with the sun out but a 30+ mph wind the cold goes right through you. Today I headed to the north side of Cape Ann to Gloucester's village of Lanseville and over to the town of Rockport.

Ice coated lobster traps!

Choppy Ipswich Bay!

It was brutal out today. I went out to do errands round 3 and couldn't believe how cold it was.

Your photos are, as always, gorgeous. I love winter in photos anyway...

When I wake up and see ice on the nuns and cans, then I know that an extra layer of cloths will be needed! This morning we had sea smoke. Brrrrr....

"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"!
