Not New York . . . that’s for sure. But do the colors look at all familiar?
That name should tell you why I posted these photos, taken in Skagway, Alaska, and sent along by Bob Heselberg. Click here for more info on Lily Oldendorff, sister of Alice, who most recently appeared here on this blog.
And finally, the day before the race, I got this photo from MY former Pioneer crewmate Darell Terrance Gilbert. Now crewing on a people mover on the sixth boro, he sees a lot of things not many folks see. for example, back on a cold evening in January, he sent along this pic that we’ve never quite figured out.
Bob and Darell, thanks much for sending along these pics.
Here was 15. The first relief crew post appeared here over seven years ago. The idea is to feature someone else’s photos and/or writing, just because so many of you see, photograph, and write such interesting stuff AND –of course–because collaboration is such powerful leaven.
All these photos today come from Birk Thomas. The event was the departure last week of CV-60 USS Saratoga–Brooklyn built–for the scrapyard. For some intriguing photos of the other end of her life, click here for this navsource site.
Signet Warhorse III is the motive force.
Not until last night did I learn that a final aircraft takeoff and landing was happening at this very moment up on her flight deck.
Warhorse . . . what a name!
Note the riding crew on the deck.
Rainbow straightens out the tow. . .
in the early minutes of the tow.
Again, many thanks to Birk Thomas for use of these photos, which not all of you have seen on Facebook.
Parrish . . .as in Maxfield Parrish . . . always painted skies like these . . .
although they never had robots on the horizon.
And this is beautiful holopelagic weed.
The photos come from a mariner minus moniker.
Here was 29. (The apostrophe is making me lose count.)
Below . . . just in this morning from Ashley Hutto . . call this “can’t sleep ’til I get to Brooklyn.”
From Jason Padgett high above Broad Street about a week and a half ago, part of a submarine on a barge entering the East River, and
from Jonathan Steinman, the same unit a little farther up the East River. A little over two years ago, Birk Thomas took these of a similar cargo.
And from a secret salt . . . some months back, it MAY be the same tug as seen in dry dock but what would be a submarine perspective.
From along the Maas and taken by Fred Trooster last week, it’s the restored tug Elbe.
From another secret salt . . . these are sixth boro waters to be kept in mind whenever you’re tempted to swim here.
The world is full of secret salts, another of whom sent this photo of Louisiana vessel with an intriguing name.
And finally, a photo I took . . . of a scrapyard with an alarming name, until you accept that it might be another language.
Thanks much to Ashley, Jason, Jonathan, Fred, and all the secret salts who send me photos. And finally . . . a photo I took myself, and I’ll leave you to guess where, a photo that goes along with an article Elizabeth sent me recently about an invasive species in Colombia.
Off the Japanese coast?
Isn’t that Patrick Sky? Has she been boarded?
Nah . . . Patrick is just bunkering the Japanese Coast Guard Kojima on its annual trip through the sixth boro.
Many thanks to . . .was it Tony? . . . for these great pics.
Pulling the plug?
Trying to put it back before the sixth boro drains away? Freeing a fouled conning tower on an experimental North Korean submarine? Attempting a descent into a rumored rabbit hole? Performance artist? Very small bobber tender preparing for a large fish to bite? Got a better caption?
Thanks for this photo sent by a secret salt . . .
Oops . . . I “published” this prematurely and unintentionally if you saw it in disarray. And by the way, today I saw the woodchuck and his shadow; he saw mine and dove for cover. I wonder if that means six more weeks of cold weather. Please, someone advise.
From the wandering eye of Maraki . . . it’s in Nassau and
And from a secret salt via Ashley Hutto . . . four days I saw Orange Sun depart the sixth boro here, he caught it inbound Tampa. Thanks . . . salt.
Finally . . from the jaunt captain Fred of tug44, it’s what hibernates at the bottom of Lock 6 of the Champlain Canal . . . front to rear . . . HR Hawk, HR Beaver, HR Otter. You’d think there’d be a woodchuck there too!
September 2013 I took this photo of a sibling of the hibernating tugs . . HR Bass, assisted by Herbert P. Brake. Interestingly, HR Bass used to be Delta Tiger, HR Hawk . . . Delta Parrot, HR Otter . . . Delta Ram, and HR Beaver ???
. .. Mr Lane. I’ll bet you thought I’d say . . . Delta Woodchuck.
Many thanks to Maraki crew, secret salt, Ashley, and Fred.
I’m very impressed . . . all the images I put up yesterday got identified and within a few hours either in comments section or on Facebook.
The top foto yesterday came from Thomas Scian of the USS Slater project in Albany. Click here to read the latest Slater Signals publication with info about the upcoming dry-docking. Thomas has promised to keep us informed about the tow down the Hudson around mid-February–in two weeks or so already– so that this transit can be well-photographed. I took the foto below back in September 2013. Here’s the navsource.org info on Slater.
The engine room pics came from Kelsey Patrick Connors. The first engine room is from Navigator, with twin EMDs 12-645-e4, 2150hp each. Here’s a foot of Navigator Norfolk-bound out the Narrows.
Some of you commented on how clean the Detroit Diesel was. It’s one of two 16-cylinder 149s at 900 hp that power Outrageous. I took these fotos of Outrageous in May 2009.
Thanks much to Kelsey and Thomas for use of the pics. Thanks all of you for your answers. I have no news on Sea Lion.
Here was 22.
Fotos today come from David Gardiner and Paul Strubeck. David took fotos 1 and 3 on September 1 at dawn. More of David’s beautiful work can be found at DaveGarPhoto.
Another of David’s fotos of Discovery Coast.
This one from Paul dates from 1974.
And a half hour before David took the spectacular sunrise fotos in Gowanus Bay on September 1, I took this one of James Turecamo, an indefatigeable 44-year-old.
Many thanks to David and Paul.
