Sinking Workboat

By handlerstudio  
A film photo taken some years ago, with my trusty Olympus OM-2, my main camera for almost 30 years. This de-masted boat, probably a workboat is in shallow water on the edge of Knapps Narrows, between the Chesapeake Bay and the Shoptalk River. The entrances on either end are well marked....and on either end of the Narrows so shallow that if you leave the channel or miss a mark, you will be hard aground. North end of the Narrows is mainland, south side is Tilghman Island, which traditionally was the home to much of the skipjack fleet for the Bay. The skipjacks were the only way, in Maryland waters, to drag for oysters.

News....we just learned tonight of the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the night after she was honored and awarded, here in Philadelphia, at the Constitution Center. A great woman and Supreme Court justice....and she did not achieve her important goal of making it to January 1, when the next Congress convenes. [Political message removed by ePz]

Once someone's pride and joy - a fine capture from the past, Peter.
Terrible news about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a worrying to read narrative!!
