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!

Train Hits Man..Extrodinary Efforts To Free Victim

About 10:30pm Sunday an MBTA train out of Rockport hit a man under the extension overpass on route 128. Rescue workers lifted the train to extracate the trapped victim. Awesome teamwork by both Gloucester police and fire personel in a trying situation.

The extension was still open when I went by.I had no clue what was going on and saw a CATA bus lined up with rescue equipment and thought perhaps the train broke down or jumped the tracks. I stayed clear and watched from a distance,the last thing I wanted to do is get in the way. The photos look closer than I was. I zoomed in on the photos during the processing. This was a difficult circumstance for the police & fire,extrodinary efforts were used to save a life.
