I’m always afraid to overdo any particular subject here at The Daily Portsmouth. Sometimes, I can’t help myself…in the late afternoon recently I had the chance to stroll down Ceres Street and the lighting was just awesome. It’s been an appropriate amount of time since the last tugboat photo – so even though I overdo the tugs (nobody seems to mind too much), I thought I’d share a new take on the workers. The Moran Towing tugboats are serious pieces of machinery, and they’ve gotten busy again with the arrival of fall and freighters unloading sand and salt. I love the grittiness of the shot and the textures that seem to pop off of the frame, highlighting the ruggedness of the vessel. I think it’s a nice change from the usual sunset/waterfront shots that usually feature them.
I’m not sure there are too many better ways to spend a warm and sunny evening than out on one of Portsmouth’s famed decks, enjoying a cold beverage. Left to right are Harpoon Willy’s, The River House and the Old Ferry Landing.
