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!

Nature's Grand Finale !

The timing has to be right, a passing thunderstorm had just came through as the sun was setting. That's what it takes to get pastel skies such as these. I had just took the dog out who had to wait out the storm to do her thing and that's when I noticed the magic happening above. I grabbed my camera and the both of us headed to Good Harbor Beach then later to Niles Beach.

Domestic & Wild Residents!

This summer a Red Tail Hawk has taken up residence in a nearby pine tree. As the days go by the hawk is becoming bold, while in the yard the hawk swooped so low over me it almost took my hat off! Several days ago Allie started barking in the yard, as I checked on her the hawk was sitting on a branch only about 12'-15' above her and didn't flinch even when I stood just below! Just after I took the photo of Allie diving into the pool I head a loud "SNAP", as I looked up there was the hawk clutching a large branch. As if to show off it's strength, it swooped by me for a photo op!

Saturday at The St. Peter's Fiesta 2013 !

Here's Saturday at the Fieasta. I finally had some time to go through over 500 images I took. My biggest dissapointment was not capturing the winning Greasy Pole walk when I moved to allow people behind me to see. Just as I lifted the camera back up to shoot it was too late!

"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"!
