Those Janus heads the other day startled me because they were so utterly divergent. The year is well on its way, the old has fallen away, and in looking over photos from last summer, I’ve been noticing partners, pairs in synch. Auspicious signs for the year ahead, I hope?

Kayakers, swimmers, terrapins, stripers, sea jellies… see them above headed up the East River? See some of them? Actually, I’ve seen terrapin swimming around under the piers more often than I’ve seen swimmers in the East River.

I don’t know what type of sailboat this is, but they’ve equal belly in their sails as they race toward Ellis Island and the next tack. Below a pair of McAllister tugs bring Eagle upriver. Interesting info and photos of the Eagle can be found at that link.

Below are a pair of Norwegian Cruise LinesNorwegian Dawn and Norwegian Jewel— plus one leaving Jersey City’s Goldman Sachs to starboard and outbound. Actually a third smaller NCL ship follows them. A guess that makes triplets, and I’m getting drifting. That may be a good omen.
