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!

Pandemic Pause Continues!

With restrictions in place life as we know it has certainly had an effect on everybody and everything. Traffic at times is non-existent which at times is not a bad thing but I noticed less air traffic to. It kind of reminds me the days after 911.

Someone is making signs of  the carvings from the Babson Boulders of Dogtown and planting them along Bass Rocks!

 Over a year ago the city covered my path to my compost pile and emergency water source for my koi pond(city tap water kills the fish) dumping brush from some downed trees. Now I have time to clean it up.

Hunkered Down But Still Around!

While most do their part in this war against the Caronavirus I pretty much go to work then head home. There's not much to do in between with all the restrictions in place except yard work. We had an interesting weather week with rain, wind and a little snow.

Not much getting around these days!

It's pandemic preoccupation with this coronavirus still hanging around the country and the world. The more this goes on the more I see the need for a vaccine to get things back to normal. Lets hope it's soon.

Here I have a few from this past week and more from the previous week.

Nothing to Do and Something to See!

With social restrictions in place due to the Coronavirus Cape Ann is feeling like a deserted place. All these photos were taken from the cab of my pick-up truck.

"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"!
