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 Truck and Old Waterfront Derelicts!

 I bought a new Ford F-150, similar to my 2020 model both with a 36 gallon tank. But this one has the bigger 5.0 8 cylinder Coyote engine. Surprisingly both the 2.7 twin turbo and the 5.0 have similar mpg ratings. Meanwhile down on the waterfront I came upon some derelicts.

Hurricane Lee Was Really Breezy Lee!

 Hurricane hype filled the super markets and emptied the beaches and when all was said and done we got a little late night rain and a breezy day. On another note I'm heart broken, one of my favorite subjects to photograph is gone! The Bass Rocks Sunrise Tree was taken down! It was wind shaped by nature over the years and withstood what Mother Nature threw at it. A living symbol of our rugged coast.

Bass Rocks Sunrise Tree gone!

"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"!
