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!

Tranquility and Stupidity!

We had a mix of bad and good weather here but a reminder for those who wish to see the savage sea close up. Though awe inspiring Mother Nature can and does take the foolish away! Every year we hear of someone getting too close to the surf and being carried away and lost. This week I saw someone tempting Mother Nature. Early in the morning I was probably the only one to witness this foolish act, and only because I was looking through my 300mm telephoto lens. I was too far to warn him and with the roar of the pounding surf I doubt he could hear my trucks horn. All I could do is watch and hope he backed off. Luckily he did.

Breaker moving in.
 A foolish soul almost gets swallowed up!
 He runs away!
 He's still too close.
 After this he retreats.

"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"!
