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!

Capsized Boat & Crazed "Birders" !

The snow has fallen and I figured it would would be a good time to get some "pics". I headed to the breakwater when "birders from all over,even a couple from North Carolina started to gather. They were in search of the rare "Ivory Gull". The parking area next to the lighthouse was packed but I managed to find a spot near the keepers driveway. I headed to the breakwater to find a terrible sight,a capsized boat which was about 1/4 mile outside. It turned out to the the "clamshell boat" "Providenza",it overturned about 10:00 AM and both crewmen were saved by a passing boat. The boat was used to dump empty clamshells at sea.

"Providenza" right

Great, great shots, Jay!!! I especially love the one of GHB with the lighthouses all covered in snow.

Well "dun"!

Great shots Jay! BTW did they spot the famous gull?? I thought for sure you would have it there in the blog pictures!

Jay Albert said...

Thanks Laura! Yes most there got "the shot" but myself I'm not a "birder". If it ain't in plain view my attention turns elswhere. Plus so many cars were heading in, I got out of there before I was "trapped"!

The commotion reminds me of last Christmas when there was a slaty backed gull at Niles Pond.

"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"!
