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!

Oh So Brief !

Finally a day off just to goof off! I headed down to the boat and topped off the fuel tanks turned the key and nothing! Great the battery is dead, and I should of expected it. With hardly any time to go boating she has been sitting idle at the dock for some time. I figured no big deal I'll haul out the portable power charger and once I get going she'll charge right up. Once hooked up to the battery I lowered the engine into the water and errr,errr, start! Since my boat is in the mud at low tide I had just enough reserve power in the booster to trim the engine back up. Then it was a trip to town to buy a new battery. By the time it was installed I had just enough time to take a spin to the outer harbor and back before the tide went out!

"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"!
