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!

Grey Day After a Snowfall!

 All these images were taken early Saturday morning. This post has challenged me, I lost internet service and Comcast says it' an area outage. In order to post this I had to transfer my files to my laptop using a thumb drive. Luckily the laptop is barely running off a remote wifi.

Middle of February!

                  It was a busy week taking pics. Plenty of sunrise pics on my rides home from work and Sunday went for for a ride and clicked what looked interesting.

Sunrise and Snow!

 The timing for sunrise is now in my favor. Working the overnight shift I head home as the sun rise so I take the long way home. Then on Superbowl Sunday we were hit with about a 6" snowfall. I also added a few from last weeks Nor'easter.

Daybreak over the city.

My grand nieces building a snowman.

The snowman "Pigpen"!

"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"!
