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!

Winter....No Doubt About It !

Winter has a firm grip and single digit temps are in the forecast. Sometime late Tuesday or so weathermen are predicting another Nor'easter that may batter the coast with possible snow accumulations that could reach the 20" range! With all the snow now on the ground, I took the time to clear as much possible so I would have a place to put the new threat.

20"?? I haven't heard any predictions yet but I do know that we already have a LOT of snow! All you can do is laugh if we have another big storm.

More great photos. I'm especially liking the abandoned dory one.

That abandoned dory has been there for a couple of years now. There was a time I felt like taking it home and fixing it up.....such a waste, but it makes a good photo subject!

"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"!
