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!

Wooden Vessels, Plastic Toys and a Fiberglass ?

I finally had time to get out on the boat so I checked the radar and it looked good. All New England was clear, as a matter of fact the whole northeast looked clear. I board the boat and remove all the side curtains, check all the systems including checking the bilge and make sure the pump is working. As I was going through my routine I hear thunder off into the distance! How could this be? About 15 minutes earlier the weather radar was clear as a bell! I take out my cell phone and bring up the radar app. At first as it's loading nothing but soon all these green spots are popping up about 10 miles west of me then start to enlarge and become red and yellow! I hesitate and hold off for about 5 minutes then figure I'd at least start the engine and give the new battery a charge. I look at the radar again and notice the storm is heading just south of Cape Ann. With that I cast off and motor through Smith Cove.

Kayaks as I round the Rocky Neck Marine Railways.

A "Samay" sighting!

A fixture in the harbor, this boat is rigged to catch just about anything in the ocean!

From fish to lobster! Notice the paddles atop the T-top!

Work in progress, the "Speedwell" built in 1921!

The "Speedwell" is 33' 6" in length.

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"!
