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!

MS Eurodam Visits Gloucester !

The largest cruiseship ever to enter Gloucester harbor! To give you an idea of her 935' length, she is 135' longer than the Jodrey Fish Pier! 2104 of her passengers were seen all over downtown while many went on whale watch cruises and other tours throughout the Cape Ann area. After I finished a fishing vessel offload early in the morning I headed out in my boat to get a close-up view. I felt like a guppy puppy looking up at this majestic behemoth!
