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!

Fireworks over Gloucester 2013! At the last minute I decided to try to capture Gloucester's traditional July 3rd Fireworks. Should I set up my tripod on the east side of the harbor or attempt to get closer along the Boulevard? That was my thought as I left the driveway. I decided to try to get close to the Boulevard and see how far the traffic would allow me to go. I breezed to the West End then parked in the Birdseye parking lot. Getting out of the truck I purposely left my tripod behind knowing it may get in the way of the huge crowd and concentrated on using the flash and trusting my shutter trigger finger timing.
