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!

New Wheels for the Lens!

Since 1987 I've driven a Dodge Dakota, three of them. I've have great luck with all of them and considered my self a loyal Dodge owner. The last one I bought was in 2004  and even though I only had driven it 63k miles she was starting to show her age. Starting two years ago the front end gave me troubles and the repair bills were starting to add up. I would have loved to get another Dakota but Dodge abandoned me and discontinued the model in 2011. So for the first time ever I now drive a Ford. What got my interest was the aluminum body, in this area salt is not too friendly with steel. Now I can get off the beaten path with confidence looking for that special shot.

Last Look of September!

Much of these images I took from the roof of the Beauport Hotel. And all of those were a complete surprise. I was making the rounds checking the roof when I saw the layers of fog and had to go back to my office to grab the camera. The rainbow(s) was by pure luck. I overheard a guest say "Oh my God, how beautiful" and looked over and saw the brilliant color of the base of the rainbow. Again I headed to the office to grab the camera then headed up to the roof.  In less than 5 minutes it was gone!

"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"!
