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!

Greasy Pole...Friday !

Alot more boats surrounding the Greasy Pole than I expected and a haze that challenged me hung in the air. But the event was entertaining as it always is.

I'm surprised they still let people do that. I thought the fun had been sucked out of just about everything.

Those are outstanding!

Thanks! As I said the light was terrible. I wanted to catch the seine boats but the CG & Harbor Master had too many restrictions in the area. Once I was anchored other boats began to "raft" around me. And when the flag was finally taken down I made it back to my slip with 15 minutes to spare! My boat is on the mud near low tide!

Jay, I was wondering how your were going to cope shooting into the sun but these are awsome.

Jay Albert said...

Thanks Steve! The sky was just too bright so I tried to concentrate from the pole down. Half way through the "walk" a boat got in my way.You can see a corner of it's T-top and rod holders in the last photo.

"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"!
