ABC Wednesday - C is for Crane



C is for Crane............



a red crane on a barge in the ocean



This barge and crane were sitting pretty close to the side of the river, so I would guess it was being used to dredge the bottom.

It was early afternoon when I took this image, and it was idle with no one around it.

It would have been really interesting to see it in action.

If you look to the extreme right of the photo, you can see a couple more cranes across the river.

A busy port to be sure!




This is the fifth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  6. To tell the truth, what caught my eye is that aircraft in the background. Looks like it's painted in JetBlue's colors -- and it also looks like it's sitting in/on the water. (Can't be!) I assume this is near an airport?
