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!

River Trip Cut Short, Not By Weather!

But by Greenheads! I got as far as the end of Wheelers Point when I was attacked by hungry stinging Greenheads! With river speed limits at 5 mph the temptation to hit the throttle was almost over-powering! Trying to navigate and take photos while these horsefly like demons buzzed around my head and ankles was a challenge to say the least. I came about and headed back to the harbor. Once back through the A.Piatt Andrew Bridge,the onsluaght subsided.

Hi Jay.

Those greenheads are brutal aren't they? We get them around our pool and they bite the kids or my husband. How you managed to keep it at a low speed I'm not sure!

Everytime I see your photos it's like I'm back in Gloucester all over again! Sure wish I were.


Jay Albert said...

Yes Frank it was a nice day until the greenheads arrived!

Sharon,I'm lucky that no greenheads are on my side of the cape. But they sure make up for it when I visit their neck of the woods. Hey I'm still waiting for more of your "Gloucester" shots!

Nice Shots under the bridge Jay!

"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"!
