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!

The Calm Before Irene !

As Hurricane Irene approaches I couldn't help but think of the so called "calm before the storm" as life goes on. All we can do is prepare and wait to see what havoc the storm will create. I secured my trash barrel and put away the deck chairs. Then I headed to my boat and sealed all the open rod holders that open up to the bilge. Folded up the Bimini top and stowed the side curtains. Made sure the bilge pump switch is on stand-by mode,deployed the port side fenders in case other boats or floats breaks away and checked my doubled up dock lines. In the water she'll stay, I figured if I brought her home the falling branches from the surrounding trees would cause more damage.
And a safety reminder:
The temptation is great to photograph and to watch the angry seas.....STAY AWAY! Even if you think you are at a safe distance YOU ARE NOT! I've seen the ocean do some strange things during Nor'easters, you'll be surprised on it's reach. And when it grabs you it doesn't let go! People have been lost in lesser conditions.

This is just a glimpse of what the ocean can do.

Happy passengers.

I got to get them all in!

I think they need a bigger boat!

A time of calmness.

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!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
