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!

Random Shots...Random Years !

Most times I have a theme to go along with my posts. That's just the way it ends up,a series of images that sums up the goings on in my travels. This time I had so few recent photos that as a group really didn't add up to one theme. So I went back in time....database time that is and picked out a few from here and there.

I love the photo "Gulls surround the boat....2009". Great capture! I always find it hilarious when a boat is bombarded with seagulls. My grandfather (who was a commercial fisherman) used to say that the seagulls know when a good catch pulls in.

Your grandfather was right! And now with less fish landed the gulls are becoming bold. One day I saw several gulls attack and kill a pigeon!

"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"!
