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!

Freeze Is Upon Us & A Vessel Needs A Tow !

With temps getting into single digits at night salt water freezes. The 77' lobster boat "Michael & Kristen" with five crew members lost engine power about 200 miles southeast of Nantucket Island in 20knt winds and 8' seas. The Cape Cod based fishing vessel "Rachel Leah" reached her and began towing operations later to be taken over by the USCG cutter "Escanaba". She is making good progress as I type. In the meantime I assembled some images of the "Michael & Kristen" along with a few "ice shots".

BREAKING NEWS: "Michael & Kristen" is now in safe harbor being towed in by the USCG into Provincetown harbor.

"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"!
