I’m back from some Rn’R in Saratoga Springs, a nice place to visit even with the lack of Tugboats.
This week’s blog was photographed at my usual location at the end of Bard Ave Staten Island, 1½ hours of nonstop activity, with great light.
Within minutes of my arrival at the location, I was greeted by “Little Toot”, Wilmington Delaware’s former Fireboat 7, now privately owned. Little Toot made an appearance at the 2012 Tugboat Races, and I haven’t seen her since.
A huge Dredge, “R.S. Weeks” on its way to Caddell’s Dry Dock, was the next surprise. Dan Marine “High-rise” Tugs Chesapeake and Discovery Coast, FDNY Fireboat “Governor Alfred E Smith”, and a new sighting, Tug “Patricia”.
Come be a part of a global photography event!
On October 5, I will be leading a Photowalk along the KVK and Richmond Terrace, as part of Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk day. We will be walking from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal to the Snug Harbor area.
The walk is free, but you must sign up. Be seeing you on the Kill, John Skelson.
