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!

Gloucester Fire Department...Another Great Stop!

Sometime after 2:00pm began my walk with the dog when I saw smoke behind the hill from my house. As I turned to walk up the hill I could hear sirens as the Gloucester Fire Department headed over to East Main Street. Then it was back home to grab the camera and head back over the hill as the GFD again made a great stop and saved the home from extensive destruction. All out was declared at 4:15pm. As far as I know there were no injuries.

Great pics as usual Jay. I might just send a link to the "most valuable resources" pic to some of the national firefighting magazines. I'm sure they'd enjoy that!

really the angle of this shots are really great. The action on the scene really very heart stopping.

"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"!
