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 Bolger Boat For the US Navy !

Back in March, Susanne Altenburger the wife of the late prolific boat designer Phil Bolger started construction of a prototype patrol/landing craft for the US Navy. Unique in it's design and construction this "green" vessel is modular built out of wood!
The 38-foot energy-efficient light patrol craft is designed to be shipped anywhere in the world in a 40-foot container or built as a kit where ever. The 6000lb vessel will be powered by a single 225 outboard motor and is expected to see top speeds of about 25mph. It's shallow draft is ideal for harbors,rivers and bays, its expected area of deployment. Funding for this project, $75,000 from federal funding to the city, $50,000 from the Navy and about $10,000 from the state.
After sea trials by US Naval officials (Probably in the Spring) the plan is for the vessel to remain in Gloucester and used for marine biology research.

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"!
