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!

Dead Of Winter !

Winter has a firm grip, tourists are home and the locals have nature to admire. The last fews days we've gone from snow,wind and rain. Today.... sunshine! Summer seems so far away but the days are getting longer and in a few weeks the Crocus will start busting up from the ground! But we gotta get to Spring first!

These images are from the last few days.

Hi, Jay -

I especially liked the snow "ball."
I could see light through its edges and the top glistened. In some ways, it reminded me of a rose bud.
Super photo.

I want to say it's a red shouldered hawk but without looking it up I can't be positive.

You sure do capture some wonderful sunsets Jay. What an unbelievable amount of gulls too. Wonderful photos!

from the size I would have to guess that it is a Goshawk

"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"!
