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!

Sharp Crisp Skies!

 That time of year where we get those sharp clear skies making sunrises even better. Soon I hope to get sunsets too.

November Temps Are Up and Down!

 So far November has been strange as far as temps go. We have had 60's, 70's and as I type it's now 40 degrees f.

Time to Haul Hull With a Tow!

 I tried to haul my boat out for the season since mid October but a pinched nerve in the spine and the loss of steering pushed things back. Though I feel great now not so for the boat. I tried every which way to solve the steering issue with no luck. Finally thanks to my nephew and his lobster boat we were able to tow it to the boat ramp.

Ready to go.

"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"!
