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!

Ready For the White Stuff !

Frame up and covered,ready for winter's onslaught. The yearly ritual boat owners in these parts perform. The first year I had this boat I tried shrink wrap and it was the last. I wasn't too happy of the mold and mildew that formed along the rub rail from moisture that developed due to the tight plastic. Also the mess of having to get rid of a 5" diameter ball of plastic. Then I considered the $225.00 yearly cost of having it installed. Solution....a $35.00 tarp! The trick is making it as tight as possible to prevent the wind from flapping and tearing the material. I get 4-5 years out of a 40'x30'tarp for my 21' boat and an added bonus of protection from the gel coat fading sun by being able to cover almost down to the keel. Over the next few days I'll tuck in and cinch down here and there where needed.

Frame up

This year I extended the framing at the bow to prevent sag during heavy snow loads.

Aft....still more adjustments to do.

Wrapped and ready.
