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!

Irene Leftovers and the Days After !

The day Irene came ashore I took 204 images and had some leftovers good enough to post. As the storm departed it gave way to a deep blue sky and took with it the humidity.

And please remember, I took the storm photos with a 300mm zoom lens and I further enlarged most after download. At no time was I close to the reach of the mighty ocean, but I hope they give you a sense of being in the middle of it all.

Great shots of the storm, Jay! That guy was certainly risking the life of his camera. I went to the beach sunday afternoon but the tide was out so the surf wasn't that impressive.
As much as I had hoped to make it down to Rockport and Gloucester this summer it didn't happen. Maybe in the fall?

"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"!
