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!

A Winter Coating !

Pretty to look at and a pain to drive in. That wet heavy snow that coats everything is the best and worst to deal with. Even though the total accumulation was only 6" to 7" it left a morning coating that you had to be careful what you walked under. Example: When I took the dog out snow broke free of the power line above my yard and much of it ended down my collar and onto my back!

I LOVE these! I love blue and white so a blue sky and a frosting of snow is my idea of gorgeous! Thanks, Jay!

I will not complain about the heat, just the humidity!

It sure is beautiful and your right about it being a pain, I was rear-ended when I went out to pick up my daughter at a friends! No damage to my SUV but he had a big square dent in his bumper from my trailer hitch.

Most of the snow must be gone by now, right? Ours is fading fast.

The one with the masts is excellent!

My favorites: "from my deck" and the bandstand. Thanks for sharing.

"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"!
