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!

Time For Change !

I'm going back to school...well sort of! I'll be away to Woods Hole on Cape Cod(The other cape) for a few days for certification training to become the Port of Gloucester Dock Monitor. I will be monitoring the unloading of fish and documenting the weight of each species landed. After over 30 years in the aerospace/military/medical industries involved in Quality Control, this will be a departure of that career. But I'm looking forward to a new challenge. Growing up as a "wharf rat", this new career should be interesting.

This series is from the past week and some images I didn't include in past posts.

Clouds building over Gloucester.
