And here's a little lunchtime something for those of you who just don't give a flounder's fart about the water access politics on NYC...
Carol Haywood, the artist behind the Trawlers & Tugs: Art of the Working Boat blog (one of the more recent additions to the "Generally Salty" section of my blogroll) is having a little contest in celebration of her 100th post. Each of her posts features an artist who specializes in nautical themes. I actually found her blog for the first time after one of my occasional looks to see who's linking to me. I followed the link over to find that she'd posted a link to my old Buzznet gallery from my first visit to the Graveyard of Ships (not counting the MKC "toxic tour" where we turned back 5 minutes shy of the actual yard).
Now, I think I've taken some not-bad pix with my 3 little Pentaxes, but I do not consider myself an artist and I'm insanely flattered to be included in company like that.
I told her about Bowsprite right away of course - Bowsprite being one of my favorite roving artists of NY Harbor (Harry's another) - and Carol did a great post on her, too.
The 100th day contest is simple - you vote for your favorite artist, and you try to predict who's going to win. There is actually a very nice prize for one lucky voter!
3 Trawlers & Tugs links & then I'm going back to work:
Here are the rules & Carol's email address
Here is our wonderful Bowsprite's post
And look, here's me! Hee hee! Bonnie K. Frogma, photographer...I do like that.
Obviously I think everybody should vote for Bowsprite (or me, if you really really want to!) - but don't cheat yourself by just sending an email without taking a look at the others! Spend some time browsing the site, there's some amazing stuff over there & I swear if Bowsprite wasn't in there, I really don't know how I could have picked a favorite.
