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!

August Winds Down!

 We got a full day of rain last week and the brook behind my house flowed, but 24 hours later it dried up. A few weeks ago I got stung by a wasp and a week later my niece did too, the other day my dog got stung so I went on a wasp nest hunt. After probing with a rake handle I found it buried behind a clump of vines next to my side gate.  They were Bald Faced Hornets which are in the wasp family and very aggressive! I mounted an attack with soapy water in a spray bottle and won! The soapy water coats their skin and they drop like flies, they breath through their skin. I didn't suffer any stings during the attack!

A Week With No Rain and Teasing Clouds!

 The drought continues with a possibility of rain on Monday. We shall see, this summer the rain seems to avoid Cape Ann. The brook behind my house is now dry as a bone, we need a multi day soaker for real relief.
