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!

Aftermath !

With as much as 7" of rain over the region the sun finally broke through late Tuesday afternoon. When I saw the ray of sunlight against my office wall I grabbed my camera and headed to the top of the hill behind my house to document the momentous occasion. In this light the city had that early 20th century industrial look!

Those are great photos!

I had to smile at your comment about the city having an early 20th century industrial look...I was thinking, would my 7th great grandfather, the Rev. John White ( His daughter Lucy, who married the Rev. Joseph "Handkerchief" Moody of Nat Hawthorne's tale, were my 6th great grands ) recognize his home town at all? :)

I am so glad that you have gotten some sun at last! I am also so glad I found your blog.

yikes so much water. I hope it recedes quickly. If you had damage please consider flood insurance and if the states gets fema to declares a disaster and you had damage you will be able to apply for assistance or reduced rate loans.

My word, can you even believe how nice it was today? And to think the next two days will be even nicer! I think we were one of the only ones in our neighborhood who didn't get water in.

I like the fog shot with the old posts sticking up out of the water. They're all good though. Isn't it great watching storm clouds burn off?
