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!

Colors Of A Sunset !

I miss more sunsets than I catch....Way more! But to me a good sunset is one that has many colors,interesting clouds and some foreground and background objects. With heavy clouds most of the day I wasn't thinking about sunsets, I was down at Captain Joe & Sons Lobster just "shooting the breeze" when I caught a glimpse of the docked lobster boat "Dog & I. The orange light bathed the boat, and when a yellow hulled boat is illuminated in that light she really stands out. That's when I went to my truck and grabbed the camera.

"Dog & I"!

A golden sunset!

A fuzzy golden light!

Lobster boat heads in!

Gold shimmers!

Approaching the docks!

Hard starboard!

15 minutes later the color changes and another lobster boat heads in!

Gull swoops away!

Sun sets behind lobster traps!

Thanks! I can't imagine living inland,perhaps near a lake may be ok but the water really adds to a good sunset.

"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"!
