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!

A View From the Docks !

I never know when my work day begins or where to start until I get the call telling me what boat has sent out their trip end hail report. From dock to dock I go with my traveling hand held office setting up in a strategic location to view the weigh scales. The environment is fast and furious with fish being dumped onto the sorting table to be packed into totes according to market grade. Fork lifts and pallet jacks are in constant motion while dock workers perform in a ballet of ice and slime.

Very, very nice, Jay. You seem happy with your new job. That's wonderful.

So far so good Kathleen. It's much different from my past career in Quality Control. Gone is the daily pressure of looking for perfection in engineering and workmanship. Not being under the same roof all day is great too!

Looks like a good day on the docks!

Glad you're enjoying your new job, Jay. Change can be good sometimes!

"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"!
