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!

Surprise! More Snow!

I shouldn't be surprised, we shouldn't be surprised by another snow storm. After all it is winter and it snows during winter. But what gets me is all the hoopla you see on TV when it snows. You would think the weather people and reporters think the end of the world is near! One thing I've learned through the years is to stay off highways when it's snowing. Not because I can't drive in it, actually I don't mind at all. But what I do mind are the idiots that have no clue on how to drive in the snow! Just because some have 4WD they think fast is good. I see more SUV's and other 4WD vehicles in spin outs and accidents than I do 2WD vehicles, and by a wide margin! Maybe those are weather people and reporters and their rants of gloom and doom comes from their snow driving skills....or lack of!

Anyhow while at work I saw the first snowflake at 5:30 am, about 15 minutes later the roads were covered. Lucky for me my relief came in one hour early and I hit the road at 7:00am. By then at least 4" of snow was on the ground and coming down fast and furious. Instead of taking the highway I slowly traveled along route 127 along the coast for a relaxing ride home.
