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!

International Dory Races and Then Some !

The annual International Dory Races are a fun event to photograph. At least they are until I get home to down load the images. I discovered most of the photos were either over exposed or out of focus! My 300mm Sigma lens is the culprit,something messed up the inner workings and wouldn't sync up with the camera settings. I love my camera but one drawback is the small display screen, it's difficult to see at that size the subtle differences. Last night I cleaned the lens "guts" and it appears I solved the problem.
In the meantime things are gearing up for the annual Saint Peter's Fiesta this coming week! Most of the decorations are in place as carnival rides go up. Also seine boat crews can be seen around the harbor practicing.

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"!
