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!

It's funny but I was thinking "what recession?" last night t the rt auction. People were paying big, big, big bucks for the paintings. Talked to your sister there.

Looks like it was a great day!

What I want to know Jay is how do you even get in and out of that mess without getting seriously tangled up! Is the channel even open?

I took some really neat photos going through the Blynman bridge, though I didn't realize that's what it was called. Maybe one of these days I'll post a few more of my wonderful day in Gloucester!

Enjoy every last moment of summer. It's creeping away too quickly!

The channel is open as it skirts the beach. There was so much boat traffic on my way back I zig-zagged thru the the anchored vessels at half the normal river speed and made short cuts that actually saved travel time! The Blynman Bridge by the way is one of the busiest in the world! It averages over 10,000 openings per year! Check my links section,there is a live cam there on the bridge.

That's pretty cool! I'll have to look at tomorrow when it's sure to be busier than tonight.

"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"!
