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!

The Curiosity of Irene !

Note: All these images were taken with a 300mm zoom lens and most were further enlarged once downloaded to my computer. Never tempt Mother Nature!

Irene was pegged by the experts as one of the most dangerous hurricanes to hit the northeast. Cities shut down, airlines flew their planes to safer airports and trains sat idle. Here in Gloucester boat owners scrambled to haul out while others like me prepped our boats best we could. By daybreak the wind caught up with the rain bans turning the sea into a frenzy. Bumper to bumper traffic of "rubber neckers" headed to the shore. The only thing missing was the street vendors, they would have done a great business! But it never ceases to amazes me of those who play chicken with nature. Never a smart thing to do. In the end we dodged a bullet, yes some trees were down and there was spotty power failures but all in all we survived just fine.

Playing chicken with Irene!

Dragging the kids through the gauntlet!


Photo time!

"Stand next to the wave"!

Now I'm getting worried.

Yes I kindly told dad the dangers of having his kids so close.

Tons of water, nothing to play with.

Now this is dangerous!

Taking pictures much too close! About a minute later a baseball size stone landed nearby!

Police show up to warn the onlookers.

Fishermen's Memorial

The only thing missing is the hull!

Steering through heavy weather!

White out!

Sitting on the bench and getting drenched!

Backwards breakers!

Bass Rocks

My boat did just fine.

And so did the Tarr & Wonson Paint Factory....It's still there!

And so is Rudy's boat! She held up fine Rudy!
