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!

Wharf collapse, Tulips and Gulls!

On Friday about 6:20 the old North Atlantic Fishery wharf collapsed taking a storage building with it. Luckily according to reports the structure was showing signs of collapse the day before and was fenced off, no one hurt.

The Stacy Boulevard re-construction is just about complete and it's a show stopper! Planted with 22,000 tulips, new walkway and railings this was done right. A May 6th re-dedication ceremony is planned for 10:00 am.

And finally a couple of gulls have been following me around at work, Gertrude and Heathcliff act as if they were trained!
