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!

To Honor 10,000 Fishermen !

The Annual Fishermen's Memorial Service is a heart felt tribute to the 10,000 Gloucester fishermen lost to the sea. This past year three more of Gloucester's "Finest kind" who were lost were also honored. Duane "Charlie" Rine, 51 of the vessel "Western Venture" who was lost while diving in an attempt to remove gear from the boat's propeller,Giuseppe "Joe" Cracchiolo, 47 from the vessel "Sunlight" who slipped and fell from a icy ramp while boarding the vessel and Peter Prybot, 63 who fell off his lobster boat outside Rockport harbor.

It will be 20 years this coming October when the Andrea Gail was lost with all hands. The daughters of Captain "Billy" Tyne, Billie-Jo Tyne Fintel and Erica Tyne DiSanto were the guest speakers and shared an emotional tribute of their dad.

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"!
