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!

Morning Hang Up !

The morning started off with the fishing vessel "Cat Eyes" in danger of sinking when her hull or what appeared to be her dragger net "door" getting hung up against the dock on the incoming tide. With a little help from the Coast Guard and Gloucester rescue personel she finally popped free from the dock's grip.

30 minutes more and she would go under!

Hung up!

Wow they made quick work of that .I went down there about 15 minutes after it was reported and it was already done.Police and Coast Gaurd did a fine job this morning.

Jay Albert said...

That they did Frank. I couldn't see from where I was standing but it sounded like they powered up the "Jaws of Life" and used it to push her from the dock.

Wow, that's too bad! Cat Eyes' owner lives next-door to me and is a very nice guy. Glad everything is okay!

"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"!
