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!

Gloucester in a Sea of Change!


Fishing and all that goes with it.The boats,the processing plants and the railway yards have sustained this harbor for generations.Some may argue that Gloucester harbor in it's heyday was the best fishing port in the world!Times have changed,fishing has evolved into a high tech industry,fish have no where to hide The stocks have been depleted.But how much so is a valid question!Science and government have had a difficult time trying to balance on what species is available to catch and what species is off limits. Toss in boundaries in an open ocean and you can bet it will never be an exact science.In the meantime other uses of Gloucester Harbor are beginning to take hold. Whale watching has been established within the last 20 years and Gloucester has become a world leader in whale research.Pleasure boating has had an up-swing,what impact the latest fuel prices has on pleasure boating may slow down things for awhile, but will never eliminate it.With at least a 10 year waiting list for slips at area marina's,Gloucester harbor has potential to make money if a public marina were built! But the biggest leap for the future is the cruising industry! Imagine.....Gloucester as a world destination! Thanks to Frank Elliott and his new Cruiseport terminal the ships are not only on the horizon.... but have already been here!
