Orange Blossom, a Citrus Tanker, (not the train Johnny Cash sung about) unloaded her cargo of Orange Juice from some exotic land to your breakfast table.

I photographed her sailing out to sea on Thursday. Port Newark has an Orange Juice processing plant, where she unloaded.

A great, sunny Sunday afternoon at Fort Wadsworth to capture the Norwegian Breakaway, at the Verrazano bridge, sailing to Bermuda.

A cloudy but golden sky for Tuesday night’s Working Harbor tour; Beyond Sandy “High Seas on the Inner Harbor”. A good deal of KVK action was had, including getting up close and personal with a huge container ship.
