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!

Painting an Image!

Recently I received an email from Michael Centrella an artist from Connecticut. He has used some of my images to paint from. Sometimes when I look at a subject to shoot I think of it as a painting, perhaps as an artist would trying to match the actual vision with what paints to smear on the palette. What Mr. Centrella does with canvas makes me feel as if I cheated with just a simple click!

Also I headed to a few of my East Gloucester haunts to capture the recent snow fall.

Jay should be commissioned when artists use his photos!!! After all, the artist wouldn't have the subject if it wasn't for his click of the camera!!!!

I can't even imagine having that kind of talent! The first painting is really something!

Jay, you certainly didn't cheat anything. It takes a good eye to see such beauty from behind the camera. The average person could never capture what you do. So there.

"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"!
