Three Minutes in Eerie Light

I’ve done posts with titles like 15 minutes or 18 . . . but here’s a set shot in just three minutes, just after that strange cloud–comet’s tail?–passed the day the temps went up to 65 midday for a few hours, setting a NYC record for that day. Here’s Jonathan C from head-on, with Shooters […]

Golden 12 Minutes

You can find my previous “golden” posts here.   From the first photo below until the seventh and last one, only twelve minutes pass.  The setting is lock 17 in Little Falls, NY, where the lift/descent is 40.5 feet.  . Click here and here for some interesting historical pics. Let’s start with 0703 hr on October […]

Golden 42 Minutes

I took this foto at 15:40 yesterday, and I’ll call it “prelude to afternoon golden hour,”  but this is a view of the turbine from the Battery Park direction. A few weeks ago, I recorded 18 minutes, so here’s more than twice that. Geese head to wherever they go at dusk. SalvageMaster passing Caletta ushers […]

Golden 18 Minutes

Friday afternoon I timed a foray on the harbor perfectly with respect to light.  Here’s a previous “golden hour” post, from over four years ago.   And although I’m not a literalist with much, the “hour” the other afternoon lasted less than 20 minutes. 16:24 . . .  guided by the new wind turbine, Hanjin […]

Five Minutes of Craft

Elapsed time from the first to last foto in this batch is five minutes . . . what it takes to travel from the Erie Lackawanna terminal south to the old NJ Central Railroad Station.  Know what this gray vessel is?  Doubleclick enlarges. For a sense of what the Jersey City waterfront looked like a […]

Something Different 64

If I knew then (pick a date in the past) what I know now, I’d do things differently.  This is a universal story involving 20/20 hindsight.  In this specific case, I’d have used the tag “Great Loop” whenever it would have applied.  In less than a short nine minutes, you can meet an unforgettable guy, […]

OPP 90 Followup: Skyray

This follows on yesterday’s post, using Lew’s photos taken on the Connecticut River.  Shawn Miller brought it up the North River for the airplane’s reunion with Intrepid.  All that greenery forms the base of Stevens Institute of Technology.    For more on the aircraft, click here.    A truck-mounted crane was ready on the pier […]

Sound Ferries 2

After I return to CSF with a camera, I’ll pick up part 1 again.   For now, let’s look at another ferry line that crosses the Sound.  By the way, how many ferries do you see in the photo below? It was a foggy day in Port Jefferson that I chose to walk on for […]

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. […]

Ever Given (Under) Way

The Soo is open, the SL Seaway is open, and now after 6 days, 3 hours, and 38 minutes of blockage . . . the Suez is open. I’d started this post before Ever Given was freed and intend it as a survey of some of the tugs involved, here from largest to smaller. Obviously […]
