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!
With this Coronavirus around things here have slowed down. I'm lucky enough to still be working but on the overnight shift makes me feel like the last man on earth. Warmer weather is ahead and so is better times. I look at it as an adventure with new rules and hopefully a better outcome. 102 years ago we faced the Spanish Flu, we will overcome this one!
This Caronavirus kinda reminds me of the Blizzard of 1969 where Cape Ann was hammered with a 41" snowstorm and power was out for over two weeks. No school and supermarkets running out of everything, not because of hoarding but no deliveries could get in. If we can survive that we can survive this.
In the meantime I'll keep the shutter clicking. In this installment sunrises and sunsets and a "year ago" thrown in.
A few days of high winds turns the sea boiling. All these photos I took late afternoon on Saturday as the winds died down but the seas were still active. Keep in mind when photographing from the shoreline keep a safe distance. Too many get too close and even if your not swept away you can be hurt from flying rocks the sea kicks up! Many of these photos were taken with my 300mm zoom lens and all were taken from the road. Stay safe far away!
