Here from Ashley Hutto, Mister Jim pushing five barges, upbound through the Highlands.  If you could swivel the camera to the right, you’d be looking at West Point.  I love the reality-defying lens.

I’m always happy to put up others’ photos. Cell phone shots, though, don’t display well on a larger screen.  If you’ve sent a photo that I’ve not yet used, I’m working on it. First, from Phil Gilson .  .  Driftmaster is retrieving a car that plunged off the fishing pier in Bay Ridge earlier last […]
