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!

Buried Alive.....It Sure Feels Like It!

Another week another snow storm, it's like being under the end of a conveyor belt delivering snow! Though it's a pain and can be dangerous for many reasons including roof collapses, it does bring scenery of wonder.

Global Warming.....Ya Right!

So this is "Global Warming", well I guess nobody told Mother Nature! Another week and another snow storm just keeps piling on top of us. The first year I got a snow blower our biggest snow storm that winter only brought about 5" of snow. This winter its working overtime and I'm glad I have it. 

A little camera news:
 I've been shooting with a Nikon D50 for almost 10 years. It's been dependable to say the least but now is showing its age. So last week I decided to do some research and buy a new camera. I settled with a Nikon D7000 which will also allow me to take videos. The D50 is rated at 6.1 meg pixels while the D7000 is 16.2 meg pixels and should provide me with easier editing. My D50 will be now be back up once the new one arrives, it would be too difficult to get rid of an old dependable friend.

"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"!
