One year ago this week, June 30th, USS Slater returned to her berth in Albany after several months of repairs at Caddell Dry Dock, Staten Island.

I was out at 5am to photograph the start of her journey back home; once again, I’m sharing some of the photos here.

I have lots of photos this week, from a drizzly Working Harbor Tour, to a Kodachrome sunny day at the office, too many to share today, but here’s a few.
