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!
Most mornings around here have been foggy this past week. Also it was time for a new walkway and drive way. My house was built in 1958 and it was finally time to replace those. After I got a new Ford F-150 in 2017 it was apparent the driveway was not wide enough for that and my wife's Jeep. My passenger side tires were sitting on the grass and slowly sinking. Back in December we got a new fence and purposely moved the original fence line about two feet to allow plenty of parking room.
During the week we were hit with a nasty T-storm which did damage in Annisquam. And we all heard the sad news out of Texas and Ohio Saturday. On Sunday an environmental group conducted a mock funeral for Mother Earth complete with black coffins at Good Harbor Beach. A poor choice of time and place, all in view of children and families enjoying a day at the beach.
Shocking Good Harbor Beach!
