KVK Dawn 7

Here were previous iterations of this title, as well as here, an AK Sunrise.  If this effort were for a work published when complete, inconsistencies like dawn v. sunrise would be aligned, but this has always been a work in progress, a wandering that could end at any time. So yesterday morning I was at […]

KVK Dawn 6

Steve Munoz took the first three photos in October 1986 from Borenquin.  The tug identified as Kathryne E. McAllister appears to be the one from 1975, now known as Brendan Turecamo.  Borenquin lived many lives between launching in Vancouver WA in 1945 and scrapping in Beihei CH (near the northeastern border of Vietnam) in 1989. […]

Dawn 2021

It’s morning again!  If you can read photo, this is a long one, will take you a while. Truth be told, I took this photo on December 28, but close enough.  Seeing the magic of dawn light is the reason I often get up in the brutal darkness. If you want to see something extraordinary, […]

Narrows Dawn 4

Here are previous installments.  What’s different here is that in this case I’m inside  the Narrows and shooting to the east and north. Yankee passes in light before sunrise. I rotate the lens 90 degrees to the right and Margaret stands by along with James D to support Maersk Chicago, anchored in Stapleton.  As I […]

All these tugboats have a common design feature.  I’ll let you figure it out.  Eastern Dawn pushed a load of scrap westbound in the Kills. James William showed off her bow as she traveled light toward the Upper Bay.   Ditto Buchanan 12, usually confined to pushing up and down the Hudson with a train […]

Many thanks to my friend Lew who sent along the next two photos of MNI (Mohawk Northeast Inc.) boats. Michael is a 2004 Bayou La Batre build, 71′ x 28′ and bringing 2100 hp to the job.  Previously, I’d seen MNI tug Swift, with its unique yellow livery, in the sixth boro.  Lew also got […]

Let’s jump back to the present . . .  and Doris Moran, both light and moving containers across the harbor to the other container port back fields. If I count right, that’s 160 containers not on chassis pulled by trucks on the BQE, SIE, or other such clogged arteries. Brinn Courtney is moving a scow, […]

Caitlin and Prometheus’ Cargo

Let me interrupt my “out of the bayou” aka “regular programming” posts to a) announce my return to the sixth boro and b) update you on some exciting cargo that arrived in the sixth boro earlier this week.  For the first 4 photos, I’m grateful to Benjamin Moll, since I had not yet returned here […]

Awareness 3

Earlier in the month, I got views of the first details marking the October awareness of the scourge, one of many.  Since then, I saw more, which I honor here. Eastern Dawn marked it. Kirby Moran shows the awareness. So do Mary Turecamo and Laura K mostly obscured. ONE Stork and ONE Wren have that […]

Kimberly Poling and barge lie alongside Maritime Gracious for lightering.   Eastern Dawn, here pushing a mini barge, continues to work in the sixth boro, with a base over alongside the dormant Evening Tide.  Bruce A. travels west in the East River after a job over near Throg’s Neck. I love the “whitewater” on the […]
