Under the bridge…

Here’s another video from a day on the Delaware River. This time, we pass under the Ben Franklin Bridge in glorious black and white. Stay with the video all the way to the end to see the subway train crossing.

That’s a handsome bridge, especially from that angle. I have another one coming in which we’ll pass under the Walt Whitman. Stay tuned.

Container Shipping

Here’s an interesting video I made while working on the Delaware River recently. Passing Packer Avenue Container Terminal, there was a ship taking on bunker fuel.

This is a part of the USA infrastructure that many people do not see. All types of products travel via the container system, which is quite remarkable. More on this soon. (Video made with Nikon D810.)

 

SS United States in black and white

Was on the river recently and managed to capture some nice video passing the SS United States, where it has been docked for many years now in Philadelphia. Here’s the video:

That’s the fastest trans-Atlantic liner ever. Impressive even in its current sorry state. Wonder what will happen to it. (captured with Nikon D810)

Railroad Sunset (Hasselblad, Ektachrome)

Way back in 2002, I was taking photographs with a marvelous Hasselblad 202FA equipped with an equally impressive Zeiss lens. I got lucky late one afternoon when this scene evolved in a rail yard at sunset:

Ektachrom V100S captured the moment in stunning color, exactly as it was. There is no “photoshop” work done on this photo; it was simply scanned from the original slide. I miss that Ektachrome and the camera. Sometimes the results astounded me.
