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 Fishing Machine With Character !

It gets him on the water to enjoy his passion of fishing. Almost everyday you can expect a "Samay" sighting in the harbor, a "Rube Goldberg" fishing machine geared to catch just about anything under the sea that can swim or crawl. It started out as a Mako center console, I'm guessing originally built in the mid 70's and is now continually revamped to suit his needs. Not only does this vessel have character but his dock does also!

Everything and more to go fish'n!

Notice the "Shut up and FISH" sign!

At the dock.

Again at the dock but grounded at low tide.

A rare offshore sighting back in 2007!

Meanwhile back at work....Monkfish at Pigeon Cove/Wholefoods.

"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"!
