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!

My Old Rides and a New Ride!

 My first pick up truck was a 1978 Chevy C-10 I bought new for $4800.00! The 1st month I had it the head gasket blew a month later the heater core failed and a few months later the speedo cable busted. Within 3 years body rust started to show! That left a bad taste in my mouth for GM products. Next came a new 1986 Dodge Dakota followed by a 1996 Dakota then a 2004 Dakota. No serious problems with the Dakotas but Dodge stopped making them in 2011 when Fiat bought Chrysler. I would have bought another Dakota but Dodge went down hill after the Fiat merger. So in 2017 I traded my 2004 Dakota with only 63k miles on it for a Ford F-150 STX with the 2.7 twin turbo Ecoboost engine. Because I put on little mileage per year I decided to lease. 

    Well the lease was up this month so I decided to lease another. The 2017 I just traded only had 13.1k miles on it! This time I figured to get more bells & whistles for another STX package then buy out the lease.

"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"!
