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!

Waterfront Madness !

Expose the bait and they will come! Just with a little bit of fish scraps the skies fill up with hungry gulls. Feathered flight ops is a daily occurrence when lobster boats "bait-up". Soon after "baiting-up" a Nor'easter hit the coast. With my house about 1/2 mile from the shore line as the gull flies, I could hear the rumble of the surf from my front door.

I've seen the gulls swarm like that once when I was over near the Coast Guard lighthouse. If were on board a vessel, I certainly would have found it annoying!
The Ocean is one powerful source of strength.
We're coming up on the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in a few days. Until I moved out here to Michigan, two winters ago, I would have never appreciated how like the sea, these Lakes can be at times....! :(
I enjoyed the photos in your last few entries, thanks. :)
Have a great work week!

And tonight the Challenger and Endeavor came back in.

"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"!
