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!

Coddock! Possible Cod/Haddock Hybrid?

The inshore dragger "Bantry Bay" skippered by Dan Murphy recently landed an unusual specimen, with coloring of a Cod and features of a Haddock this is the second known landing of this hybrid fish. Back in March of 2007 the Rockport dragger "Terminator" landed a similar specimen.

Also in this post I headed to Newburyport and caught the "Early Times" coming in to offload. And Josh catching a gull chick that wandered into the offloading dock at Gloucester Seafood Display Auction looking for a free meal.

Wow, a Coddock. What a unique fish, I wonder what it tastes likes. We usually prefer Haddock over Cod. Fresh Cod can be very wormy.

"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"!
