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!

Oh Deer !

Heading home the other morning I take my usual route and ride past Good Harbor Beach. This time I spot what I thought was a dog running loose, Dogs are prohibited from the beach this time of year. But after pulling over I noticed it was a doe, a deer a female deer! People need to stay clear however there were a few people chasing it with their phones trying to capture it on camera.

The Heat Is On!

This weekend was hot and humid, so much so I passed on doing yard work. We usually get the sea breeze to keep things cool but not this time. I even turned on my truck's AC for the 1st time even though it's two years old, and it works!

Mid July and More Fireworks!

I had planned to shoot more around the waterfront this past week but a sore back slowed me down a bit.  I broke up my yard work to a  little one day and a little the next day through the week and left me with little time to shoot.

"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"!
