The Welcoming Committee.

Here is the group of photos that the “Ghost Ferry” photo failed to fit with.

After you hurry to get to the ferry, sometimes you’re early, and you have to wait until it actually arrives.

So you take pictures.

Vineyard Haven Harbor, wooden boats, rock breakwater, steel and aluminum ferry.

The ferry “Island Home” is so big it has eighteen windshield wipers.

In which the photographer moves in order to place the ferry within the “frame” of the transfer bridge. He likes the yellow rails, which are nice color on a gray day.

Almost every tangible object on Martha’s Vineyard has arrived here on a boat.

How long there have there been pigeons in Vineyard Haven?

So many questions….
