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!

Weathering A Different Storm !

The working waterfront has weathered many storms, but the most distructive does not come in the form of weather but in government regulations. Past over fishing by an industry with little controls brought the need for tighter rules to preserve our heritage. Through these controls and the efforts and sacrifices of the fishermen, many fish species have bounced back to sustainable levels. Yet allowable fish quotas fall far from financial sustainability for the fishermen to survive. A new system "Catch Shares" has been in place since May 1st which allows the fishermen the freedom to go out and fish when they want. And the addition of "Dock Monitors" to complement the "Onboard Monitors" will allow more accurate catch totals that would lead to assured fish stocks for the future. Bottom line is that fish quotas need to be increased but in a way that both fish stocks and fishermen can prosper.

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
