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!

Man Overboard!

In this case it was a youngster overboard! I was walking along the dock when one of the workers saw someone fall overboard from a small sailboat. With camera in hand we worked our way to the end of the pier to see if we could assist. When things like this happen you think of stuff like try to get someone's attention on the tiller and swing the boat port towards the float and be ready to put the camera down. Luckily the crew remained calm, including the youngster in the water and he was hauled back in.
Meanwhile back on the dock and waiting for a boat to arrive Eric tried his hand...or should I say his body at a new fad called "Planking"! I guess the idea is to make your body stiff as a board and perch yourself on things. There is such a thing, I looked it up! It appears "Planking" started in England. Leave it to the Brits to come up with a boring fad!

Smart kids all wearing life vests, except for the oldest who apparently felt he was above all that ; )

Tell Eric that the latest trend is not planking but 'owling'. He'll have to look it up. Crazy stuff.

Handsome Gull to say the least!

"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"!
