I don’t use the word much, either because I lack it or because it’s such a given that I’ve become unaware of its existence in my life… and I really can’t tell which.   McAllister Girls motors determinedly to prevent the momentum about 500 times its mass from crushing a dock.

Meet the momentum, APL Cyprine, entering port at dawn a few days before the fall equinox

like the dark power its name suggests

But Girls and Rowan McAllister vector the 5000+ TEU Cyprine into its slot

Two tugs v. 5000 trucks move it in place

and all before breakfast and

without doubt that three more shifts can be done before lunch.

All fotos, Will Van Dorp.
