The Ghost in the Machine

I took a series of daytime shots at the shipyard this weekend, concentrating on the huge Manitowoc crane which transports material across the yard. Even though the crane was carrying steel plates and giant ladders onto the ships, I was struck by the slow and graceful movements of material suspended from chains and advancing purposefully above the yard. I felt as though I was watching acrobats performing high above the audience at a circus.

Ahhhh…but who is the mover and shaker here? Who directs the show, keeps acts moving?

Meet the Ringmaster.



Pretty sure you are going to have to view these shots full-sized in order to find the fellow in blue jeans and a flannel shirt.


I’ll show you the series this week.
