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!

May is here!

With the month of May now on the table it's time to think Summer! I wonder what this season will bring? Gas prices sky rocketing it's gonna be a challenge to get out onto the water. Signs of a slow boating season are in the want ads. Used power boats for sale is saturating the market.In the meantime I gotta get off my duff and start prepping mine. Last week it's winter cacoon was removed,interior washed and bimini and side curtains installed. The grunt work is yet to begin....painting the bottom! A necessary chore to prohibit marine growth.Using an ablative paint will keep those miliage robbing barnicals and gunk from sticking to the hull.Timing is the key,an ablative paint is a soft paint.Run the boat and anything clinging to it washes away.The trick is to launch the boat 16-24 hours after painting.Allowing the paint to be exposed to air any longer will harden the surface and loose it's affectivness.A no rain weekend and if possible temps at least in the 60's is what I'm hoping for....we'll see.
Anywho,time to look at summer's past:

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"!
