Sometimes voices talk to me as I’m taking photos.  I realize I’m leaving myself wide open when I write something like that, but I’m not joking.  Especially when a vessel named Opportunity comes in.  Be honest.  What would the voice in your head say?

 

And then it goes away?

So once you register that “opportunity comes and goes,”  and then you see other vessels doing the same . . . .?

sure . . . Yankee comes and goes.  Her sister vessel . . .  Freedom comes and goes.

Even clunkier names . . .  RHL Agilitas . . . yup . . . .

she comes and goes . . . from Kingston Jamaica to Halifax Canada.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who himself comes and goes.   Then other times he eats shoots and leaves. 

 

Here are all the previous names posts.

I sometimes take photos and imagine how I’ll use them, and then later, another photo offers great juxtaposition.  Like this one.  I used it before here.

But then another photo jumps into my vantage point and camera, and suggests a different use.  We have The Commissioner above and Commodore below, so

that makes me wonder whether and where might be other boats like Contender, Confuser,  . . . Collaborator, which strikes me as a good name for a crew rowboat or a three-person kayak.

The NYC Ferry has grown quickly and chosen some interesting names.  Each time I see this one, my brain makes me say Opportunity comes and

Opportunity goes.  People who arrive late at the dock might report that they missed the opportunity.

I know this boat but I don’t know why a stranger might have difficulty identifying it.

Both sides had this treatment.

ONE Stork showed up here a while back, pink or magenta, and I missed it.  Next time.  In the fall.

There’s an announcement coming tomorrow.
