Tugboat idling

Spotted this handsome tugboat idling in the river during a recent video mission.DSC_1780

Great looking boat, well cared for, and working steadily. (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)

Indie Photo Lab, Philadelphia

Here’s a “thank you” and “job well done” to Indie Photo Lab in Philadelphia. As viewers of this blog will know, I’ve been meddling in film photography again. Of course, I need a professional lab to develop and scan my results. The crew at Indie Photo Lab did a great job, especially on some scans of 4X5 film I shot more than 15 years ago. Here’s a digital look at their storefront.

They process b/w and color of various kinds. Check out their website for more details: http://www.indiephotolab.com Friendly staff at the counter, too, which makes a big difference. Enjoy the art.

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!
