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!

Harbor Heats Up...Literally !

Dispite temperatures climbing towards the 100 degree mark, harbor work continues.
Below is a series of photos of a lobsterman loading bait on his boat. A colorful treat as far as the lobsters are concerned! The American Lobster(Homarus americanus) will eat almost anything dead.....including each other!

Lobsterman Toby aboard his lobster boat "Jupiter II" shows how to "bait up" his boat.

Organizing bait totes.

Climbing on his "mermaid" decorated transom.

Long climb up the ladder at low tide!

Toby digging into a vat of fish scraps!

Full pitchfork of Spiny dogfish(small shark) left overs.

Long plunge to the boat.

Toby needs to climb back down before the gulls devour his bait!

"Jupiter II" departs as a squadron of gulls follow!

So lively! Your pictures are always so interesting.

"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"!
