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!

Finally Splashed the Boat!

 It didn't go as planned, I prepped the boat and cleaned it up. Installed the batteries and she turned over right away! Everything looked good. To be sure I hooked up the garden hose to the engine to allow the engine to warm up and charge the batteries then the overheat alarm went off! I wasn't getting any water flow out of the "pee hole". I cleaned the lines and water sputtered out then nothing. No launching that day, so I contacted an ex football player I coached in high school who owns Crocker's Boat Yard in Manchester By-the-Sea which is a Honda dealer. Skip sent a mechanic to my house and discovered the thermostat was all fouled up. A new thermostat and I was good to go. However my nice clean boat wasn't clean any more from another week sitting under the trees. At least I can clean it again at the dock.

Crocker's Boat Yard to the rescue!

A Bee the Beach and City Hall!

 I had one of those weeks where I was under the gun to get things done and didn't get the opportunity to get out and shoot. So here I have a few from my front steps and Good Harbor Beach and City Hall taken Sunday.

Umbrella malfunction!
Yes there were some in the cold water.

Explosive Mother Nature!

 Strong winds this past week churned up the ocean. The seas battered the coast so much I could hear and feel the ground rumble in my yard about a mile from the Back Shore!

"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"!
