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!

Every so often I need to find an image in my files for all kinds of reasons. But when I do I tend to wander and reorganize the data base. During a recent wandering, I put aside these for this post.

Spring Slowly Arrives!

It's not like turning on a switch and BANG Spring is here. No, it's taking a bit to see the trees and flowers bloom, but it's getting there.

Fog and Dusk!

Here's a look at what I took this weekend. Early morning fog and dusk. During the sunsets I focused on the indirect light on several of these photos. 

Foggy morning
 Lobster pots stacked.
USCG Cutter "Grand Isle"
 Sun behind the post.
 Empty floats
 North Shore Art Association
 Beacon Marine
 Good Harbor Beach
 The footbridge

 Harbor Cove at dusk.
 The old Birdseye plant.
Greasy Pole in the calm harbor.

"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"!
