This week I’ve been out-of-the-office shooting photos around the harbor. The summer cruise ship schedule is starting with the arrival of the Celebrity Summit at Bayonne. Also, Quantum of the Seas departed NY Harbor for the last time headed for her new port in China.

B&H Photo
sponsored a 3-day photo event capped off with a sunset photography (no sunset) cruise on the Circle Line Queen in the North River, Upper Bay and East River. I was able to shoot the Sea Lion on this trip; she was sunk off Rockaway in January 2014 and is now back in service after a long re-build.
