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!

A Maritime Collection and a Change In Rules !

After being away for safety training I gathered some more images from last weeks storm and from around the docks.

A new government requirement will be enforced starting May 1st. It will require all Dock Monitors(me)to board all vessels after all fish has been unloaded to assure the boat is empty of fish. I'm not the only one who is not happy about this rule, other DM's are semi-retired and injury is a real possibility. Low tide climbing down slippery and damaged ladders, confined spaces with slippery fish holds and vessels slamming the dock in heavy weather are some of the concerns. The whole unload process will slow down, at times I have as many as 8-12 boats a day at different docks around the waterfront. I also cover Rockport and Newburyport, and this new season instead of covering a minimum of 50% of the landings.....62% will have to be covered!

For almost a year now I have worked the trust of the captains, with this new rule I feel the captains would think I don't trust them! But rules are rules and hopefully this requirement will revert back to where it belongs....In the hands of law enforcement!

Note: the 1st two images were taken with my cell phone.
