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!

Cloud Canopy and One Big Cod !

Late afternoon after morning rain produced a special light effect when the sun made it's appearance. Earlier a large cod was landed at the Gloucester Seafood Auction Display.

Now that's a cod! Caught by the fishing vessel "Christina Eleni".

"Karoline Marie" arrives.

Crowded docks.

That is one helluva big, and ugly, fish alright! Man!

What's the story on the Good Harbor house? Is it owned by anyone famous? It certainly is photographed enough.

Jay Albert said...

That house was once owned by a foreign diplomat,I think from Tiawan. That house could be yours,last I heard it was on the market for about $7 million!

A New England Life said...

Well it could be someone's but probably not mine. Maybe we could go halfsies ; )

Jay Albert said...

We could lease it out as a summer rental! I wonder what rate we could get?

"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"!
