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!

Scallops, Tuna and Sunsets !

With Maine groundfish boats unloading here due to a Maine rule that prohibits them from landing lobster, New Jersey boats offload their scallop catch here rather than New Bedford due to slow fish processors there. These factors are a few reasons why Gloucester is such a valuable fishing port.One of the scallop boat captains says it's more of an advantage to steam 139 miles from the scallop grounds to offload here than to wait around an extra day or two just to offload and get ice there. No one wants their catch to spoil while waiting around, time is money so they say.
