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!

"Field Trip" To New Bedford !

During my certification training we headed to New Bedford to witness the unloading process at the Whaling City Seafood Display Auction. It was interesting to see another working waterfront and how similar New Bedford is to Gloucester. One difference is that scallops are the big target species for their fleet. The day we were there groundfish was being unloaded.

Yup, that's some lousy weather alright, but some great pictures! Can't believe you were shooting as you drove through Boston! Yikes! lol!

Hey, I recognize that last shot. As a matter of fact I have a bunch of water view photos of it from when I was there last summer and the guys were working on the side. I'll post them sometime in June or July.

Thank god there's no oil spill up here!

Good to see what another port looks like. GOODLUCK IN YOUR NEW JOB. Sounds like it could be fun! Sort of.

I love New Bedford, especially the Johnnycake Hill area. Isn't it interesting how different the boats there look from Gloucester boats?

"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"!
