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.

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)

Love at first sight? (Aruba c. 2002?)

As mentioned in the previous post, I was going through my photo archives. I stumbled onto this one, an absolute favorite taken with my old Nikon F3. The location is Charlie’s Bar, San Nicolaas, Aruba. I remember turning from my drink at the bar and seeing this little girl look at Chavez the Cat and Chavez looking at her. Here it is (a photo of a photo):

That is a photo of a print, which actually gives it a more archival feel, like a photo from many, many years ago. I’m fairly certain that I took this in 2002. I was using film back then, film by the mile actually. There’s boundless emotion in this little scene. I only wish I could find the negative and make more prints.
