This blog is basically me pretending to be a photographer.
Over here I pretend to be a writer/photographer.
I have issues.

Had a staring contest with this visitor the other morning. She was checking out our compost pile.

The fight against rust on a steel tug boat is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week job. And the rust always wins. The top picture shows Mike, the deckhand and to Mikes lower left jack, the Captain, keeping the boat looking good.
The Captain's job description says nothing about him chipping and painting, but Jack loves to just dive right in with the rest of the boys.
Below, my assistant engineer putting together a little salad as part of our lunch. The picture has the feel of a jail cell.
That's appropriate.

Up the North River

We're anchored tonight a few miles away from the chaos that can be New York Harbor.
I have no idea what these buildings are, but the sun was setting and the glare off the windows looked really cool. My camera did not do this photo justice.

After departing Brooklyn and this old warn out grain terminal, we cruised by Manhattan, the absence of the Twin Towers still very obvious years later.
