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!

New Beginnings!

 After 2020 it feels like anything goes for the future. I promised I'd leave politics off my blog because I hate the politics of politics. It's difficult to do these days, it's like politics is trying hard to take over every day life. Because of that many people were swept into politics the wrong way and the virtue of compromise and compassion for your fellow American almost vanished leading to civil war! Though this new year had a rocky start lets hope and work at getting along, getting the pandemic behind us and getting back to a country we all can be proud of!

The Light Shines Bright!

 The natural light here is special, makes a photo pop! I guess that's why so many painters flock to Cape Ann.

A Year in Review and More!

 We all know how 2020 turned out but it did bring interesting subjects. I picked one image per month and ended up with recent unpublished images.

"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"!
