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!

Sad Time of the Year !

It's always a sad time of year when you have to haul hull and get your boat dry docked for the winter. This year I hauled out late, last weekend's storm had much to do with that along with logistics at home. With the help from my nephew we headed out through Smith Cove into a breezy 47 degree harbor then under the Blynman Bridge to the Dun Fudgin ramp. The tide was going and had about 2' to spare going under the draw bridge much to the delight of vehicular traffic. The sky was a rich blue and the water was amazingly clear. Once back on dry land, the task of power washing the hull was in order. As I type this about 12 hours later I can still feel the ache in my bones from stooping below the trailer!

"Pilot" as I get underway.

Crowded docks.

Rich blue sky over the city.

Lobster boat "Stanley Thomas" heads in.

My wake under the Blynman Bridge.

Nice sportfisher at the Cape Ann Marina.

The leaves still have more color to go.

A look back while I go get the trailer.

Ready to haul.

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"!
