Ship spotting has been fairly quiet this week, with all of the usual characters….Tugs, Containerships etc. Also, Tuesday night was the last Working Harbor Beyond Sandy tour. September 10 is the Newark Bay tour, and the Newtown Creek tour is on September 28, the last tour for the year.

The highlight was a double rainbow arched over Brooklyn, Monday evening. I lucked out by being on the SI Ferry, and having the right wide lens with me to photograph it.

So, here are this week’s photos.

I’m heading back to the waterfront for more photos…if you see me there, stop and say hello.
