It’s a darned big door, on the ferry “Martha’s Vineyard”.

Approaching the slip.

Through these doors pass thousands of cars, thousands of trucks, the vehicles that carry natives and tourists, the vehicles that bring stuff to the Vineyard.

And the vehicles that take away the stuff we throw away, to “Away”.

“Away”?

(“Away” is a word that Vineyarders have for the part of the world that is not Martha’s Vineyard.)

Approaching the transfer bridge after another crossing.

Opening and closing is accomplished by the miracle of hydraulic pistons.

The size of the door is starker in black and white.

Real-life “jaws”.

Almost done with docking…
