This old boat is sitting on the edge of Lake Michigan. It is basically getting ready to be dismantled and recycled based on the torches that were near the bow. I finally got a chance to shoot a long exposure of this ship. Luckily you cant see the pigeons that kept flying in and out. Processed to give it the gritty look it deserves. Black and White is the only way to adequately display this old fire boat from Chicago.

    Excellent in B&W. Timeless.

  • Thank you. Im always wondering what the first comment will be, if i even get one lol. I love black and white and this loses some of its punch in color even though the peeling paint is red.

    It’s sad when they take them apart. Another bit of History somehow down the tubes. Glad you go the shot before she’s gone.
    Good stuff.

  • I agree, but then again it is better to recycle them then let them sit like this forever.

    Looks great… this sort of item can also sing with a judicious touch of HDR

  • Version of that coming.
