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)

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.

GoPro Hero 5 on the waterfront.

I took the GoPro5 on the river with me recently. Did a great job for the little camera that it is. Here’s an example of some footage in real world conditions at dawn (video runs at 2x normal speed):

Pretty good clarity and range to handle the types of light, subject matter. I’ll be doing a more thorough review of the GoPro 5 after I put it through some more paces. Hopefully, I’ll have some interesting subjects to work with. Stay tuned.

Tugboat Devon

As long as we’re on the subject of boats, let’s go to one of my favorite categories, the tugboat. Here’s a snap from 1994 of the Devon at the dock in Philadelphia.

Was a perfect morning for that photo, which prints much nicer than it scans for digital use here. Can’t wait to get out and do some old school photography soon. Will be interesting to see the artistic differences.
