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!

Lights, Camera, Action!

There was a knock at my door and it turned out to be a Hollywood location scout giving us a 1 day notice of a movie shoot the next night in my neighborhood. The name of the movie "Manchester-by-the-Sea" which to me is ironic. I coached high school football in Manchester-by-the-Sea for 20 years and now a movie of that name outside my door step! First a few trucks rolled in just before dusk but once it got dark things came together. Cables being strung, lights being assembled. Then an army of movie makers swarmed in lighting up the area like I never seen before. No one seemed to mind while I strolled around the set, all actually were very nice and proudly explaining how the movie magic is done. The star of the movie is Casey Affleck, though I didn't meet him because I had to go to work, I did meet with his "stand-in" who filled me in on his job.

Also posted are a few shots from around town and the left over snow.
