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!

Under Water...Under Clouds !

Strange weather has hit the coast,so far much of the rain has held off but the humidity comes and goes. Meanwhile harbor activity goes on. The fishing vessel "Miss Trish II" was in the process of unloading her catch when an expensive and hard to replace fitting on their onboard crane broke loose and headed overboard! No problem with Salvi Benson around. The all time St. Peter's Fiesta Greasy Pole Champ and "Jack of all marine trades" donned his scuba gear and recovered the part on the muddy bottom in about ten minutes.
The cruiseship "MS Eurodam" made another visit as 2100 passengers explored the waterfront. One nice couple from Oklahoma even found their way to the dock where I was working. With clipboard in hand I didn't have my camera ready but caught them as they waved when their shuttle went by!

Thanks for the post. Splendid pictures, especially the last one, "Moonlight over Harbor Cove".

Thanks Barista,
That image was just by chance. I was on an errand and noticed the broken clouds and moon had that haunting look. I happened to have my camera but not my tripod which is essential for night time landscape photography. I rested the camera on the back of a nearby fish truck and clicked.

"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"!
