Back down by the Port

Back down by the Port

Its been a while since I shared some shots taken on walks don at the port here in New Bedford, and I do like to mix up what I share, so thought I would do a down at the port post today, to be honest these are not recent shots, I haven't walked by the port for a while of recent I have been doing a lot of walks trying to get shots of birds or walking the trails in the area, so I found these shots I took last year and had not shared in a post as yet.

As Much as I like getting shots of the ships in the port, I sometimes like to get some shots of details on some of the commercial fishing boats so I will start and end this post with just that

Starting with this frame and rolled up fishing net, with some nice subtle sunrise colors in the background

I do plan on doing a visit down to the port soon, I am taking a break from walking the trails after the tree pollen really let my allergies flare up out of control, so since I am taking a break from the trails for a bit, even though I am feeling a lot better I will give it a few more days before venturing onto a trail, and may limit myself to one trail walk a week to start with and see how I cope, so as the sunrise is so early at the moment, a visit to the port after sunrise may be a nice change.

this next shot was early morning and I liked how the long exposure gave a cool feel to the smoke rising behind the ship

I know I have said the red Boats seem to catch my eye, but blue is still my favorite color along with purple ( not that I have seen a purple ship yet) I had to get a shot of these two boats the K.A.T.E and K.A.T.E II only when preparing the post did I noticed the full stops between the letters I was thinking it came from the Name Kate, but I now wonder is it an abbreviation for something?

And speaking of the blues, the morning blues with some nice reflections, now you may think the water was so still to get such a long reflection, and yes i was fairly still but the longer exposure time of 20 seconds really flattens out the water in a shot like this

Nice captures of the details of the port and some nice ship portrait shots. I really like the rusty red ship. Lots of character. Have a good day tattoodjay

thanks so much

have a terrific Thursday :)

Beautiful port photographs @tattoodjay 😎
I like the one with the single boat early in the morning and its reflections… the red in the dark beautiful.

Yes, sounds like a plan to try once a week and see how it goes with the allergies. Hubby stopped this week his allergy tablets and is trying without. As the season is almost over here.
Have a wonderful day today 👋🏻

Thanks so much also appreciate your feedback on your favorite helps me to get an idea of what people like

my Allergy app tells me the tree and grass allergies have dropped from high to medium and low respectively, so once a week may be a plan maybe tomorrow I will explore a trail againa nd see how it goes

You are welcome @tattoodjay happy to give my feedback on my favourites.

Good the app is telling it is going down too in your area. Very helpful.
Hope all goes well tomorrow or when you go for a walk on the trails 🤞🏻🤞🏻😁
Enjoy your day further!

I may put it off till Saturday thinking about it, Have the grandkids tomorrow so I generally take it easy the morning when they are coming for the afternoon so I am totally worn out by the end of the day

Oh yes… understandable.
Enjoy tomorrow your time with the grandkids 😁👋🏻
Walks can always be later!
