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!

Annisquam River Run !

The temps were in the mid 80's and not a cloud in the sky! With nothing on my schedule I boarded the boat and headed up river...or down river? Since the Annisquam River is tidal, it all depends on the tide. This time the tide was going so I headed against the out going flow to head up river. But half way through the out going current means I was going down river. I think it's the only river that flows both ways!

So here it is approaching mid October and yet the boat traffic was almost mid Summer like!

A Samay sighting as I pulled away from my dock.

A nice Downeast 20 heads out.


Going against a 5knt current, this sailboat struggles through "The Cut".

"Razzo" in Harbor Cove. Rumor has it that this boat is slated for demolition. The owner just bought another fishing vessel and hopefully a buyer can be found for what I believe is one of the most colorful boats in the fleet.

"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"!
