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!

A Salty Solution!

The whole trick is to deliver fresh fish to the market. With many different types of boats there is basically one way to assure the catch is fresh and that's ice. The smaller "Day Boats" simply gut and pack the fish in ice, a tried and true method to preserve it's freshness. It's a little more involved when the larger or "Trip Boats" are concerned. Most "Trip Boats" have pens below for the different species of fish and as the fish are caught they are layered with ice. A trip lasting more than 5 days great care must be spent to assure the fish doesn't spoil. But one "Trip Boat" in town has a different solution that has amazing results. The "Miss Trish II" uses brine ice made of seawater which doesn't melt as quickly. It actually sticks to the fish as they are packed into 400lb vats while the fish hold is refrigerated. This method works so well the quality of the fish after a 7-10 trip you would think it was just caught!
