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!
Last week we had a powerful storm hit the coast with 80+ mph winds. Most damage was confined away from the immediate coast while downed trees and branches took down power lines. Some areas of Cape Ann didn't have power restored until 72 hours later. Luckily my neighborhood survived except for a small tree which took down the line for the fire alarm system of the East Gloucester Elementary School. Here I include the windy day after the storm. And shots from Rockport and Manchester-By-the-Sea.
