Alice O. has it. So does John B. Caddell. Compare this shot of  Caddell above with the one below.

Same vessel, same day, different point in its cycle. There’s almost no freeboard as this coastal tanker delivers fuel, possibly to a ship offloading cargo in the harbor. Built in 1941,  Caddell in these two shots is not only in different stages of its workday but also at a distinct point in its career, nearly ending. A similar ship Mary Whalen, three years older, is being converted to an event space.

I see my rhythms in  Caddell, buoyant sometimes and nearly overladen others. My low point is semester’s end, my sister’s might be April 15 tax time. See how siblings of Caddell live on off Atlantic City by clicking here.
