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!

Scales to Feathers !

Nature is above, below and all around us. The commercial Striped Bass season started on Tuesday and so far the landings have been slow from what I've seen. Also dock workers at the Gloucester Seafood Display Auction rescued a gull chick that fell from the Americold building. While that was going on I spotted an unusual gull that had a yellow spot on the top of his head! Perhaps he was "hit" by another gull or perhaps a natural discoloring of it's feathers....I just don't know. And if that's not enough, I noticed a gull who noticed it's reflection on a nearby fishing boat wheelhouse window. For the past two days the gull would return and walk back and forth looking and pecking at it's reflection!
