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!

I liked these photos because they bring out the individuality of each vessel. I never realized until now that I've never "seen" the day to day boats except in mass and as a whole piece of cloth. Thanks, for this is a much appreciated wakeup call. I'll be sure to take the time to look at each one in the future and honor their distinctiveness...even the ones who need a wee bit of sprucing up! :)

Yesterday I took a similar photo of the "mini Motif" (yours had more photogenic boats next to it!!)... and was wondering if you know what the REAL purpose/owner/name of the building is?
Love reading your musings about the area. (Friday I saw fishermen in Newburyport pulling out a huge (to me, anyway) tuna that they said they'd caught of Jeffries Ledge. Small world!

I believe the larger Motif is town owned and used by fishermen for storage as is the smaller one on Granite Pier.

"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"!
