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!

To The Beach and Then Some!

It was a crazy week weather wise. Torrential rains like I've never seen before ending with heat and oppressive humidity! It rained so hard the fish in my fish pond were wearing raincoats!

Koi pond
 This is a path that leads to a brook that looked like a brook itself!
 A closer look.

Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That!

Just being random around town, along the water and in the yard and out of this world!

Coming in for a landing!
 Hanging around.
 Surfers at Good Harbor Beach.
 Walking the footbridge.
 Hazy morning.

 My new rain barrel to feed the fish pond.
 My neighbor put out a like new free reel mower, I couldn't resist.
 A bird flew close to me and when I looked up I saw this, a happy rainbow!

Getting Back to Normal....Sort Of!

I work the overnight shift at the Beauport Hotel and for about 3 months it was a lonely job. I was the only one working in an empty hotel. But now the hotel is open with all the Covid-19 precautions in place. It's nice to see my co-workers again and meeting new people. Functions are still on hold and valet service is suspended for obvious reasons. In the meantime I managed to get a lot of yard work done and even organized my shed.
         Here are a few images from the week:

Infant Praying Mantis on my fence post!
 Foggy at the footbridge.
 The sun fighting to shine through.
 A surfer dragging his surfboard.
 Foggy Good Harbor Beach.
 Plucking the strings beach side.

 A layer of fog over the harbor.

"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"!
