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!

The Last of October!

End of October and employees of the Beauport Hotel held a pumpkin carving contest. Here are a few of their Halloween creations.
Also a few morning shots at Good Harbor Beach and the light of the sunset on the hotel and Fishermen's Memorial.

Sometimes you gotta stop and take it in!

This is the time of year where I can catch the sunrise on my way home from work. During this past week we had a visitor, the 300' 216 passenger Great Lakes cruise ship Victory I which stayed for 3 days.

"Just In Case"!

I finally have a new computer! After much research and a tight budget I learned the best option for me was a gaming computer. They are highly recommended for photography due to their exceptional graphics and ample storage. The only problem I have so far is how to fully activate the Windows 8.1 that came with it. I need to enter a product key code but so far have failed to find it? It's usually located on the disc box but this is factory installed!
Anyway I have morning and dusk shots I took over the week. The dusk shots I call "just in case", the reason.....I was heading to the supermarket and as I was pulling out of the driveway I went back into the house for my camera just in case I passed a good shot. I'm glad I did and here we go.

We Get Leftovers!

Hurricane Matthew did great damage down south but gave us much needed rain. The local meteorologists had it wrong, they said Sunday morning would have rain for the south shore and Cape Cod and the islands with clearing by noon. It turned out all New England was in a much needed soaker all day!
So as soon as the Tom Brady NFL Destruction Tour game 1 ended I took a rain soaked ride around Cape Ann.

"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"!
