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!

From City Hall to Gulls!!

Sunday at dusk I decided to head downtown and see if I could get some shots of City Hall. It was getting dark fast and as I approached Main Street when it hit me, I forgot my tripod! It's essential for slow shutter speeds that I was going to use. Not wanting to loose the available light by going home, I tried one shot placing the camera on the dashboard. Several I took of City Hall I carefully closed the drivers window onto my camera and used it as a clamp....It worked! The shot from Bank Gloucester I rested the camera on the bed of my pick up truck. A couple of days earlier I took other photos of City Hall while the fog was coming in. Then added images from past journeys around the harbor.
