Shipyard Crane


The angles and lines of this aging shipyard crane mesmerized me. This crane is a leftover from when the Navy Yard shut down in the 1970s. I played with different shots and angles and this was my favorite. Below is an image from a couple of years ago to show you one of these cranes in a more typical orientation.

    Fantastic job with the angles and lines in this one, Chris! It looks like it could stretch into infinity. Have a wonderful Sunday! Cheers!

      Yeah. It’s been tough for getting images these days. I’m working on a portfolio of Boston morning shots and need sunny weekend mornings. There have not been a lot of them this summer.

    Whoohooo.. these are some interesting shots and I love the angle from which the snaps are taken. BDW, Chris, I work for an EPCI company, and we have tons of cranes, ships at our deck on the port. I wonder you would love to take shots of the place πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Himali. I’d love to come and make images of those cranes! It’s hard to get access to such things here. This place is more of a museum than an active shipyard. Cheers
