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!

Un-planned Photo Ops !

With my new job I take the camera with me. Going from dock to dock gives me the chance to catch the sights around the waterfront. Even when I have time off and capture the Fiesta activities on my boat, I ran into a persistant swan as I arrived back at my slip.
And here is when we first met: Swansation

Here comes the swan!

Do you ever go anywhere without Goldfish? LOL! I'd say they're a Swan favorite.

I'm always looking at your pictures and trying to figure out if I've been there before.

NO! They are the perfect snack when those hunger pains hit you on the water! And yes Sharon,you been there before, I added the link when we 1st met...The swan that is.

"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"!
