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!

Bluefin Tuna Making a Comeback !

When I was a kid it was common to see Giant Bluefin Tuna landing here in the 700-1000 pound range. Through the years over-fishing has reduced the tuna population to near endangered list levels. With strong US regulations and quotas now in place, more of these swift giants are showing up offshore, a lead that other countries should follow.

The market is dominated by the Japanese, over 80 fish auctions dot Japan and the trick is getting the right quality tuna to the right auction. Some areas of the country prize a tuna with more fat content while other areas do not and so on.
Last January a record price was paid for one single 754lb tuna.....$396,000.00 USD!
