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!

Fireworks and a Reason to Celebrate !

Since I was a kid I've always been fascinated in fireworks. The color the sounds that only last a few moments lighting up and painting the sky. And oh so difficult to photograph! While looking back in my files I came across this collection of fireworks through the years. And yes I'm in a festive mood. I'm finally back working in the field I've worked for over 30 years! Countless interviews lead me to conclude no one wants to hire Quality Control Inspectors beyond the age of 50. After being laid off in 2009 I worked as a Dock Monitor covering the offloads of fishing vessels on the North Shore. My duties involved recording the weights and species of fish and solving tally disputes between fishermen and dealers as a contracted agent for the Department of Commerce. It was a 24/7 job and the workload was weather dependent but rewarding. But mid September of 2011 NOAA and the National Marine Fisheries Service decided to stop funding the program. I was actually working for a Canadian company and when the program ended was asked by them if I would be interested on becoming a North East coordinator for the At Sea Observer program. I accepted but it wouldn't begin until May 1st of this year. About 2 weeks before I was to start NOAA decided no! Back to interviews I knew were only to satisfy employment agency contracts. Then my luck changed, a local company which is expanding came to me to tour their facilities and now I'm back at work!
