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.

Tall Tugboat

Here’s a photo of a tugboat with a wheelhouse way up there.

Better to see over the top of big barge. But surely rocks and rolls if the weather is rough.

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.

Tugboat Sunk

Digging into the archives, I found photos of the sinking of the Delilah, an old tugboat that finally found new life as an artificial reef.

The photo is a scan from an negative, with the original image made in the late 1990’s. Here’s a fuzzy shot of the last moments of the sinking:

In fact, I think this was in January of 1998 off the mouth of the Delaware Bay. Surely the hulk is still down there making a home for sea creatures.
