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!

Fog Has Taken Over !

I give up! The fog wins! There is a beauty in these low lying clouds that just couldn't prevent me from using my camera. Grey ain't so bad after all!

I have to laugh. When the weather is like this, I look at my camera and think, "Jay's out there taking pictures, no excuses..." Then I winp out. This weeks fog is tough because it is too thick to shoot in. We couldn't see what we were pointing the camera at!

Fog changes everything, the background(if any) diminishes and softens the colors. It's hit or miss for planned subjects and more often than not it's what catches the eye at that moment. I had just left the vet when I drove by the baseball field. Early spring always puts a damper on baseball practice and when I saw the gulls on the field and the limited visability down the right field line it said to me.... shoot! Sometimes Steve you just got to get out with wide eyes....and radar!

Good for you seeing the beauty in the fog Jay! Your photos are all the better for it!

Fog is certainly a big part of what Gloucester is. We all love to have sunshine but the fog also shows that Gloucester can be beautiful in all types of weather.

Beautiful pictures and I love the fog! It gives the waterfront a 'working class' type of look.

"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"!
