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!

Beauty and Beast of a Storm!

We were hit with 17" of snow and gusts as high as 70 mph. On top of that a full moon tide produced flooding the likes of which we've never seen. But it could have been worse, no homes were lost though some flooded and the shore roads were spared damage unlike other storms of the past. Power outages were also kept to the minimum and those areas that did, power was restored quickly.

 One area hard hit with flooding was the parking lot at the New Balance Track & Field at Newell Stadium. The rebuilt stadium was raised about 3' and that helped contribute to destroy about 60 vehicles parked there. The flood waters had no place to go which filled the parking lot with about 4' of water. This lot and the stadium has flooded in the past and I was dumbfounded the lot remained open. With a city parking ban in effect this lot was one of many school lots designated for parking during the ban.

And so it begins!
 I made it home before it really started.
