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!

An Early Day....A Very Early Day !

The phone rang at 2:30am, it was my office informing me a fishing vessel would be at the dock by 3:00am! Knowing that the dock workers don't begin until 4:30am, I waited until 4:15am to arrive. I felt like I was the only human alive as I drove through town without seeing one car on the road. As I approached the dock a truck driver in an eighteen wheeler was starting up his engine,a large puff of smoke burst from the exhaust pipes. Backing into a parking spot I noticed cars and vans of workers arriving. I enter the building and into the office where I'm caught in a human traffic jam at the time clock. Not on their payroll I must wait to pass due to the narrow confines.
Finally I make it onto the dock, The side door is wide open and lit from the powerful floodlights of the fishing vessel. Workers begin their symphony of moving totes and vats as the unload begins. My day has begun!

Totes and vats of Dogfish.

Yup, that's an early morning alright! But at least you were able to see the sunrise, which is always a treat. Looks like a busy day at the docks!

"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"!
