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!

It hit the Deck !

It happened during the schooner parade,my prized 200mm zoom lense hit the deck after some yahoo in one of those loud "go fast" boats hit me with his wake. At first I thought it was OK,just about all the pics I took for the rest of the day came out fine. But as I used it I noticed the outer edges were slightly blurred. Very slight at first but as time went on it got worse. Soon it became loose.Taking pictures on a boat can be and is a challenge. When I'm not in "shooting mode" I usually place the camera on the dashboard. The dash has a lip and most times it's secure. I really can't hang the camera from my neck or it would be banging into the console with the motion of the boat. I was getting into position to shoot the schooner Bluenose II,moving along at about 4 knts looking to starboard I was suddenly rocked by a huge wave hitting my port side knocking the camera to the deck. Out of the corner of my eye I saw it go.Instinctivly I moved my left foot in a vain attempt to cusion the fall.I wish I had big feet! Anyway now I have to save my pennies for a new one,in the meantime I still have the 50mm lense to use. The 1st pic below was taken with the damaged lense....the outer edges are blurred. All other pics are with the 55mm lense.
