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 Tiny Tug, A Burst of Light.....

......And other stuff.
Included here is a photo of the schooner "Spirit of Massachusetts", I took that in 2001 before I was really into photography with my first digital camera,an Olympus point & shoot. I remember that day well, it was during the annual Gloucester Schooner Festival. Instead of taking in the spectacle I was drift fishing when schooners started to appear. My boat was new back then and when I realized they were heading right at me I went to start the engine.....nothing! "Oh no" I thought as they got closer and closer. "Maybe if I pump the pressure bulb in the fuel line she'll start up" I said to myself. I frantically pumped away and still the engine wouldn't turn over! Thankfully I realized my mistake, while fishing I pulled away the clip for the kill switch. I clipped it back in and started it up. With about 100' to spare I motored away then clicked the camera.

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"!
