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!

Calm Before The Storm !

With Hurricane Earl getting closer life goes on. Hot and hazy has been the weather pattern with no clouds in sight for almost a week! But things are about to change. Due to dangerous rip tides all ocean facing beaches have been closed to swimming. Fishermen are still landing fish but the gillnetters and lobstermen are bringing in their gear.
And I went for a ride in the boat late in the afternoon. I figured I'd charge the battery and get the boat as hurricane ready as possible. That means covering all openings like the rod holders with duct tape, folding up and securing the bimini top and lowering the VHF antenna. The boat will stay in the water protected in Smith Cove, a cove in the inner harbor. There are too many trees near my home and the boat would be in more danger to damage there.
