It’s a bit brisk on the waterfront these days, but great light for photos. I photographed a couple of first timers and some regulars this week. Also, I caught the guys on the Vane tug Red Hook “Spotting Me”. The “Offshore Supply Vessel” Michael Lawrence and the James William ex Lisa Moran were among this week’s highlights.
