    Vallantho, it is an interesting subject to me as well. I worked in the stevedoring business for 23 years before retiring 2 years ago. My office overlooked the Port of Mobile and I looked down the river at half a dozen of Panamax cranes like those. I saw millions of containers handled by those cranes. The commerce from the 4 corners of the world are handled by them. Watching those crane operators is like watching an artist at work. Sorry for the loss of your father.

    I agree with Old_Dick and give it a gold star as well.
    Regards,
    Pat

    Thank you, that’s very encouraging!

    They’re incredible pieces of engineering. Late at night when everything is quiet and the wind is blowing in the right direction I can lay in bed and listen to the echoing noise of the containers being moved around. It’s pretty cool.

    Thank you both for the kind words

    First time I’ve shot a sheet of 8x10 in about 3 years. First time I’ve been able to. Long story. Not the most interesting subject. Southampton docks. But my dad used to drive those cranes, well not those actual ones, they’ve been replaced since he retired, close enough though. He died a few years ago unfortunately so to me it’s sort of a meaningful thing to photograph.

    Shot two sheets. This black and white on Fomapan 100 developed in Rodinal. I shot another on some expired Provia. Still not back from the lab yet.

    Lens was a 300mm Nikkor W 5.6
    Outstanding photo and deep meaning. I love the story behind the photo. It just gives it so much more "sense" and purpose I guess.

    Before all the smoke...
    I needed to revisit some grand landscapes made before this season's wildfires. This one is from August 2017...

    I'd been trying for several years to make a photograph I liked from Artist Point in Yellowstone. Either empty skies, overcast skies, front lighting, fogged film, you name it seemed to ruin my attempts. Finally, after getting the fogged film back from the lab, I checked the weather forecast and it looked like promising weather in the next week. I opened a new box of 11x14 Provia and loaded up. Eight hour drive, slept in the car overnight, got there early, got my spot, braved the hordes of tour buses, got my shot, and drove home. And came home with this.

    1895 Rochester King 11x14, Turner Reich 15", Provia 100F, f32, 1/10, polarizing filter.

Was there two weeks ago and got pummeled with a storm. Good thing my camera was anchored down or it would have flew away.

    Awesome, Steve! Can't wait to see what you consider to be a portfolio shot.
