Golden Hour Haze 2

OK. Ready or not, it is July. Here was the first for this.  Dawn, with all its promise, is my favorite time of day.  I’m not so much nocturnal or diurnal . . . call me interurnal, familiar with that time between night and day …   when for a short time, the light paints […]

Before Golden Hour 2

Here was 1.  Dawn’s early light is my favorite time in the city that never sleeps. Even Navig8 Gauntlet snoozes, except for the person on watch. Captain Dann is moving about, spinning around for an assist.  Radiant Ray is aptly named for this time. Truth be told, the sixth boro never sleeps. Ellen, along with […]

Before Golden Hour

It should be no secret that I’m an early riser, have always been one to get up in the “o’dark” hours for the morning golden hour, the best time of day.  Here are two Miller’s Launch OSVs, possibly Rana and Rosemary.   A bit later on a different day, I caught Dylan Cooper westbound, with […]

Golden Hour Haze

It’s been a while since I’ve acknowledged this my favorite time of day.  Golden hour at 80+ degrees is quite different than it at 40- degrees.  But here are my shots;  I took them and then headed for the shade. Larry J Hebert lies alongside the dredge and Mister Jim is happening by, westbound. Actually, […]

Random Tankers 10

Random means all within the past month and all ages and sizes, like Giancarlo D  2016   508′ x 85′. Kmarin Resolution is also a 2016  build, but 820′ x 144′.  Lightering is  Linda Moran with barge Houston.  Linda was the tug spared in the W & D fire back in 2008. Maybe someone can identify […]

Road Fotos 2021 F 1

For some context, Road Fotos 2021 E left off in September here, and I’ve not caught up with road fotos for November.  But let’s jump ahead to December, and a trip we could start in New Iberia, about 150 miles west of New Orleans.  It was a reconnoitre, a gallivant to investigate what to spend […]

Bronze 8

Way back in 2007 I started this series, and I now think I should never have called it “bronze” since it’s more like a golden brown, but no matter, this post is all the same fleet.  Name the fleet and the tug? Talking fleet renewal . . ., Reinauer has a young fleet.  Janice Ann […]

Random Tugs 299

Franklin crossed over the KVK to assist Haggerty Girls and RTC 107 out of IMTT. Patrice just finished assisting a box ship, and then turned around to help a government ship out of port. Ernest Campbell with no lion yet on its stack. Kings Points eases Double Skin 307 out of IMTT. Marjorie B. is […]

Other Peoples Photos 84

Timo Pajunen took this photo back in 2010.  Here are my questions for you:  whose livery?  what mission?  what was McArthur‘s original mission?  I’ll answer at the end of the post. Charles Ritchie took this.  Hawk YTL-153 has fine pedigree:   in 1941, she was built and launched in Pearl Harbor and was present during the […]

Bronze 9

To start, let me reiterate what I said over a half year ago here:  “Way back in 2007 I started this series, and I now think I should never have called it “bronze” since it’s more like a golden brown.” I recently saw Josephine pushing a fuel barge, and then light, pirouetting in the current, […]
