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!

Schooner Adventure Takes A Major Step!

The sight of the schooner Adventure sailing again is finally getting close to reality. On Tuesday she made her way up the railways for installation of a motor,new spars and sail rig. 122' length she was built in nearby Essex and launched in 1926.She was the last of the dory fishing schooners and worked the Grand Banks until 1953. In 1954 she was sold and refitted for the Maine windjammer trade. In doing so cabins replaced her fish hold and her engine was removed. In 1964 she was sold to Captain Jim Sharp and continued her windjammer duties until 1988 when Captain Sharp donated her to the city of Gloucester.

"Adventure" lines up.

She begins her trip up the railway.

Moving up at a snails pace.

Look close at the keel,it's crooked!

Almost out.

Blocking up the keel as clumps of mussels drip down.

Large chains haul her up.

Rudder

Stern view.

Next to the "Adventure" the Tea Party ship "Eleanor" gets her new copper bottom.

A mini trawler goes by!
