Road Fotos 2021 E

Still not back along the sixth boro . . . and so here are more photos from along the road . . .  Some murals are faded and others recently applied.  The one below must require some local knowledge to explain the juxtaposition of agriculture and defense. Others make sense as reminders of a journey […]

Fog 25 A

Apologies in advance for possible whiplash, but let’s return to the sixth boro.  I write blog posts one day at a time;  only rarely do I schedule posts in advance, so more photos of the December road trip aka F2 remain and will be posted later in the month.  When I post them, you’ll understand […]

!@#$! I missed the boat!

0631.  I had planned to get photos Cape Edmont depart the sixth boro towed by Kurt J. Crosby . . . on Saturday morning.  When I saw on AIS that McAllister tugs were mustering at the opening of the Bayonne drydock, I thought they just would depart the drydock where it had spent the past […]

From the Line Locker 37

I spent part of a quiet T’day thinking about doing a 2023 calendar, and difficult as it always is to winnow the choices down to 12 or so shots, I’m doing a calendar.  Price will likely be $20 again.    Sorry to bring up buying on this Black Friday. Going back through the 2022 photos […]

Bikester 1 Tonawanda to Albion

In that case, en avant, I should fuel and lubricate the tires. Sunday 0735. This is the look of focus!  I soon stopped and put on my gloves. I encountered three types of surface . . .  the cinders path increased effort for the “hybrid” tires I used.  Just roughly speaking, I’d say roughly 35% […]

Bikester 4 Camillus to Rome

I spent two nights in Camillus because the forecast saw high winds and rain.  A day in bed did me good, although I felt a bit guilty until the rains came.  In early afternoon, when I took the photo below, I took this color photo from my window, feeling happy to be indoors.  The next […]

Road Fotos 2021 F 2

We’re a week out from Christmas Eve and fewer days than that from the solstice, it’s time to complete road photos from two weeks ago already;  here was part 1.  The French Quarter of New Orleans has a lot of colored neon all year round, but here, juxtaposed with tropical colors of house paint, are […]

Retro Road Photos

These photos I took on a road trip 10 years ago.  Revisiting some photos from this trip underscores how little I know about the inland waterways.  Let’s start in Pittsburgh with Consol Energy’s Gabriel. Farther west at Pike Island locks, Brenda Rose pushes some large components up the Ohio. Downstream across from the stadiums in […]

Road Fotos 44

The 11% grade, per road signs, leads to a strawberry vendor if you make the left and a ferry dock if you follow all the way down to the Saint Lawrence.  See the two ferries in the distance?  Click here for a view from roughly the same location in March two years ago. Ferry Joseph […]

Road Fotos 2022B

These road fotos posts are celebrations by restless people like me of mobility and the means to travel, see new things.  I guess these are some guard rails on my southbound journey. Northbound view, this highway has a guard rail to keep anyone from tumbling into the Pacific, whereas on the right side, that bank […]
