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!

Back on the Water!

Well I will be once I prep the boat. Back in 2012 I sold my 21' 2001 Sea Pro W/A to help pay for family medical bills and being laid off for the 3rd time in 3 years. I've been itching to get back on the water again. With the pandemic going on the prices of recreational boats has sky rocketed putting me out of the market. Used boats of the size and style I wanted were going as high as $30k 20 years and older! Just by chance I clicked on the Facebook Market place and there it was sitting in New Hampshire. A similar boat I had before a 2000 Key West W/A for a price I could afford. It has a trailer that's in good shape and the boat needs a good cleaning, new batteries and replacement of some cushions. Also the bimini top has a tear in it. I need to relocate the VHF radio from the cabin to the dash. The engine is a Honda 130 hp 4 stroke which means quiet operation, I'll be able to hear the seagulls!

My old boat.

Me and the "new" boat.

"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"!
