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!

Signs & Sunsets !

You just never know what might catch your eye. Driving through West Gloucester I spotted a street sign being consumed by a tree. The rest are of sunsets from the past several days.

Beautiful...and ...funny.
Five gulls on five pilings would make a great postcard!
The way in which you caught the reflection of the sky in the beach at Magnolia is awesome. It's one of those shots that shows the difference between someone like me, who just points and shoots, and someone like you, who has an artist's eye.
Happy Sunday morning to you and yours!

Thanks Beth!
That Magnolia Beach shot is actually just "point & shoot"! I had given a ride for my nephew to his friends house and on the way home I passed the beach,rolled down my window and took the photo!
You just never know what you might see!

"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"!
