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!

Better to Look At Than to Shovel !

Snow...A pain to shovel but pretty to look at. We've been lucky so far but we all know sooner or later we'll have the white stuff to contend with. Let's hope it's later!

Can you believe it, here we are not ten minutes from the base of the Mount Washington auto road and it's been pouring rain since the middle of the night! It's December for crying out loud. I'm with you the snow is beautiful, but a pain to shovel.
The two photos of the memorials tugged at my heart. I know you say you're a click and shoot sorta guy, but I still claim you have an artist's eye! :)

I guess it's all in the composition.That's something I learn along the way. And sometimes it's fun and challenging to create an image that may be familiar in one view to a different angle in different light.

"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"!
