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!

Annisquam River at Low Tide!

It was a late afternoon low tide river ride along the Annisquam. Great weather on a weekday means little boat traffic. And the greenheads are gone,those pesky horsefly like insects that love to bite!

I love the river shots Jay . How about those kids smoking. I hope their parents don't see this. Must be nice on the river with no boat traffic. You can really relax

Jay it's true, your pictures tell the story.

Thanks! I hope their parents do see this! Now is the time to do something about it! That's about the spot where the "smoking tree" was located. Where students were allowed to smoke back when I was in H.S.

Thanks Kathy...Ya the water is OK!
The quarter debate is far from over! We have yet begun to fight!

"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"!
