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!

Angry Seas Part II !

The first three photos are three hours BEFORE high tide ! With a nor'easter roaring in the tide gets an extra boost. As I made my way over to the breakwater the rain was sideways hitting me in the backside. Needless to say the drive home was a little uncomfortable.

That is some serious surf, Jay! Hope there wasn't any flooding.

I have to ask, how do you protect your camera out in the rain? What camera do you use?

The only flooding was some minor flooding at a few waterfront buisneses. The rain on the most part was side ways. I keep the camera close to my body were my head and hat and rain hood gives some protection. Most of the shots the rain was hitting my backside so that helped. A lens hood also helps. My main concern was keeping the lens dry and luckily I did but the shots suffer in quality. With the rain they have a grainy look to them.

"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"!
