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!

All Wrapped Up !

Well.... she's out,it turned out to be a good day to "haul hull". My nephew Seth gave a hand and it took us maybe 3 minutes from when I landed her on the trailer to when I pulled away from the ramp. Timing is key,the tide was going down and if I arrived at the ramp 30 or so minutes later there wouldn't be enough water to tie up to the ramp floats. Also you need to powerwash the bottom while it's wet,otherwise that gunk will get concrete hard if allowed to dry. A fifteen minute ride home and it was still moist enough to powerwash off.

Timing of the tides and battle of the barnacles keep you on your toes in those parts. Tides only change 2-3 feet down here.

You got that right Robert! The tides avg. between 9'-10' here,full moon 11' or more.Get a nor'easter and sometimes a 15' tide that won't go out! While powerwashing the bottom I found one barnacle! I guess a piece of antifouling paint flaked off.

Ah ha! Now I know what your boat looks like! I'll be looking for you next spring.

"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"!
