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!

Winding Down March!

 It's almost time for a new camera lens. I'm noticing small glitches here and there on my Sigma 300 mm. But before I look into one I'm thinking if I can make adjustments to it. It doesn't always focus properly and could be a mounting issue to the camera like loose hardware. We shall see.

Light at the End of the Tunnel!

 This Covid pandemic has been a long siege but we are getting there. New vaccines have been developed and the effort to get everyone vaccinated has begun. Myself I was thinking to wait until all the distribution logistics has had all the kinks worked out. But out of the blue I get a call from my employer which made an appointment for me and I didn't hesitate. Friday I got my second Pfizer dose, things are getting better!

Thacher Island

"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"!
