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!

From Cape To Cape !

The only other time I have been to Cape Cod was to coach a high school football game. Off the bus onto the field then back on the bus. This time it was for training for certification to become a Dockside Monitor. The Dockside Monitor documents the offload of the fish at the dock to help assure the sector quota does not exceed catch limits per species. The training was thorough and interesting, I thought I knew my fish! I knew most but the subtle differences in several species of both Flounder and Skate was an eye opener. I stayed and studied in Falmouth while the instruction took place in Woods Hole. So after many exams,homework,studying and handling alot of dead fish I became certified. With all the study work load I didn't have much time for photography, the weather wasn't the best either.

So does this mean you're going back to work, Jay?

Jeeze, I haven't been to Woods Hole since back in the mid 80's, many a moons ago. I remember Cape Cod as being a beautiful place though. I was thinking about taking the ferry from Cape Ann (I think) to P-town this summer.

You still captured some nice photos. To bad the weather wasn't more cooperative though. Its spring though so that's what ya get.

Thanks Frank & Beth!
Yup Sharon it's back to work. But my schedule works around when the boats come in. The one thing I didn't like about Cape Cod was all the traffic lights! I'm not sure if there will be a ferry to P-town this year, it didn't run last year.

Congratulations on your certification!
