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!

Sad Day....Time To Haul Hull !

It's always a sad day when it's time to haul the boat out for the year. This year however I hardly had the time to use it with the new job. Sometimes working seven days a week, it was tough to schedule time on the boat. Perhaps next season now that I know the commercial fishing patterns I'll find the time to use it more often. But I was rewarded during the short hop over to the boat ramp with an amazing sky!
Once I got her home it was time to powerwash the the dark!

The boat looks lonely at the dock.

Here's a homemade pilot house. My last post I caught her going through the harbor.

From One Day To Another !

Boy can the weather here make a turn around. This is when boats get hauled out for the season,raking leaves and getting the snow blower ready for winter. I just reminded myself to take the air conditioner out of the window!

You Just Never Know......

From fog to sunshine, you never know what the weather will bring this time of year. Last week we had 50 degree temps and this week into the 60's. And you never know what you'll see around the area too!

A touching moment on the docks! What else did you expect me to write?

A Gloucester Autumn

The colors of Fall are here contasting to the blue sky when we have one. Pretty to look at but a mess to clean up!

Looking up to the sky!

The locals call it "The UU Church"!

"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"!
