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!

Firefighters Make a Great Stop!

It was about 7:30pm when I was almost home with a Maria's pizza when I smelled smoke. No sooner did I set the pizza down in the kitchen when my sister-in-law called and said something was going on near East Gloucester Square. The pizza had to wait as I grabbed my camera to investigate. I could see smoke in the direction of Beacon Marine then soon discovered it was the woodworking shop further down the street. By the time I got close the Gloucester Fire Department had the fire knocked down and with the help of Manchester By the Sea, Rockport and Essex fire departments prevented a major blaze. The building contains much exotic lumber and no doubt paints and varnishes. Next door two large fuel tanks and scores of stored boats big and small. Last June I was there to capture the light against the same building during a wonderful sunset. Sunset reflection. Smoke pours out. Roof work. Entering Attacking the fire. Firefighters organize. Fire knocked down. Just to the right you can see a corner of one of two fuel tanks!

Great Pictures, I was having dinner down the street at Duckworth and saw the truck going down one after another. Thanks to the quick response and disaster was averted,

Nice photos as usual. We checked them out once we got the trucks and equipment squared away after the fire. Jake.

Thanks Anthony & Jake & the Duckworth diner! One of these days I need to get a more powerful flash. I had to over highlight the images during post editing. Jake.... you guys did a great job considering the buildings contents and condition. Then there was all the trashed boats and fuel tanks surrounding the place!
