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.)

 

Car ship, inbound (video)

Of course, an iPhone will make great video. Today’s vid is more documentary than creative narrative. Nonetheless, it’s always good to practice one’s craft when the opportunity presents. So, here’s a quick look at a car ship on the Delaware River, inbound for Philadelphia:

The zoom on the iPhone degrades the quality a bit. Without a tripod, things get a bit shaky as well. Still, if you need to grab a shot, the iPhone can do the job.

Philadelphia Fire Boat (circa 2000)

The previous post showed my old Nikon F3 HP. As mentioned, I put many rolls of film through that camera. Some shots were good, others not so much. I happened to be on the Delaware River during OpSail 200o and took this snap of the Philadelphia Fire Boat leading the parade of sailing ships.

The above image is a scan from a negative. A little dusty here and there. Nonetheless, you get the idea of this rugged little craft and it’s capabilities. Will be putting a few more photos up soon. Stay tuned and thanks for watching!
