fleet week


an hour or two before the ships came into view



the met life blimp hovered over the statue of liberty



as they approached
even with a 300mm lens 
the ships looked very small from the 43rd floor





the coast guard led the way




flag proudly flying



there were several smaller ships
preceding the star of the show
the aircraft carrier


if you see a sailor
be sure to thank them for their service

  1. no sailors anywhere near here, unfortunately! What a great opportunity for photos from so high up.

  3. Appropriate for this coming weekend. It occurs to me that I can't recall the last time I saw a blimp... if ever.

  5. When I worked at 2 WTC, it was great to see things as from the 101st floor, and then go down to street level and see the water as a working harbor with tug boats, etc.
