By this point, I’d ceased thinking this was a fast-moving fishing boat.
Here’s a dawn photo I took from the Staten Island side of the Narrows six months back.
But this shot, like the top one above, I took at dawn two weeks ago while waiting for the big crane to lift itself above the horizon.
It must be me . . . but are there many things prettier to look at than this pilot vessel coming in to replenish and arriving with the dawn?
