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!

Frustrating Bright Day !

The frustrating part is I'm still looking for a job! It's been a year now and the only offers have been too far away or low pay or both! Today I just found out I just missed out on a job that could have been a perfect fit. With over 30+ years in Quality Assurance/Control I figured that would count for something. Such is life in this economy I guess. Anyway back to today's post. It was a crystal clear day but cold. Good enough though to get the dog to the beach while the gulls look for scraps at the Fish Pier.

Jay, I was wondering if you've ever found anything. I'm terribly sorry to hear a job slipped through your fingers. By now you and your wife must be a little frustrated. Not Molly though! LOL!

Another beautiful day in Gloucester. A little chilly though!

Molly is used to me being around now! Frustrating it certainly is. The only other time I was laid off was back in my football coaching days,as soon as the season was over I got a job right away! All I can do is keep sending out the resumes and hope for the best.

Hang in there Buddy it can only get better.

"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"!
