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!

Present and Past !

The last few weeks the fishermen still with quota available have been rushing to sea before the end of this fishing season. The beginning of April the government closes much of the near shore fishing grounds and May 1st it starts all over again. Because of this I've been busy on the docks and my camera time has been limited.

The Paint Factory looks really bad. It's slowly disintegrating right before your eyes. Such a shame.

Looks like those people are almost walking on water!

I can hardly wait for days like in the last photo. They can't come soon enough.

There is work being done to the Paint Factory now. Ocean Alliance (see my link section) is going to use it as their world headquarters. Visually it will remain the same....only nicer!

I just left a comment but don't think it went through ...

I think you posted something about the remodel a while ago but I wasn't sure. Good to know!

Going to check out the link.

"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"!
