My friend Jerral, is amazing when armed with a camera or a pen. Check him out over here.
He gave me an idea of collecting some of my photos that I have taken over the years, of different settings, from the vantage point of the boat and putting them in a book.
I like the idea.
Although my family quite understandably may have seen just about enough of my sunsets and rough seas, my Grandchildren who are non existent as of now, (and that's ok) might enjoy seeing what the old man saw back in the day.
What the hell, why not.
So I ventured out on deck today looking for an interesting photo op.
There wasn't one.
Did I mention I am at a dock in Bayway, NJ?
Talk about a photographers nightmare.
Tug boats with oil barges generally don't go to the most scenic docks.
The city planners had the foresight to build their refineries and storage facilities, far enough away from say Manhattan, Philadelphia or San Francisco proper, so as not to scare away the tourists.
But Bayway, well, here take a look.
Not much going on there, so I looked over here.
Nothing. Just nothing!
If you were to visit Bayway NJ by car, your trip North on Interstate 95 would take you past Sewaren, Carteret and Elizabeth New Jersey.
Believe me, you would not confuse this ride with a ride up the Pacific Coast Highway on the other side of the country.
It's just an ugly part of the North East.
I was just about to pack it in for the evening when I heard the sound of a plane overhead.
Then I realized that, even in Bayway New Jersey, the ever changing canvas of the sky
has something to offer.
Especially at sunset.

Citizens of Bayway.
Your goal in life is to get out of Bayway, NJ.
May God be with you.
I hope you succeed.
