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!

St. Peter's Fiesta....A Look Back !

The St. Peter's Fiesta is a photographers delight, there's a photo op at almost every turn. Though I do this as a hobby with no deadlines to meet I love to show off our area to the rest of the world.

In three days of covering the water events with a pie eating contest thrown in, I clicked the shutter 861 times! That's 861 images to go through one by one then picking out the best to fit a selective sequence. With so many photos to screen there are always photos that I just plain missed. Images that should have belonged to other posts to maximize the story I was trying to tell.

I don't consider my posts of the Fiesta as complete, there's so much going on and I wish I could be at several places at the same time such as covering more of the Seine Boat Races. At least I can say I attempted a logistical nightmare to catch what I could. And perhaps you can appreciate what a great tradition and event the St. Peter's Fiesta truly is.
