Our ferry “lifeline” carries a lot of life in August.
Today’s post is a series of images from a recent trips across Vineyard Sound.
A big dockside tent shelter popped up during the heady days following 9-11. The “homeland security” deluge of money was phenomenal, and since no bureaucracy can turn down an influx of cash, we got these crazy tents and other sorts of security swag.
The tents were ordered and installed so hastily that little thought was given to what happens when regular steel is used in a salty and corrosive atmosphere.
Vineyard Sound is a busy place on an August weekend day.
What is it that makes us love images diffused by mists?
There are vessel that have more than funtime as their main purpose. Here are two.
At dockside, Big Brother and Panopticon await you.
That funny thing on the camera support, the thing that looks like a jellyfish, or a critter floating in the air in the movie “Avatar”? Those arced wires with weights on the tips bob around in the wind, to discourage birds from landing there.
You don’t want seagull poop on your surveillance equipment.
