Dance of the Cranes, Part 1
« on: January 27, 2018, 03:46:46 PM »
It was slow driving on Main St in the Salem-Camden area on Thursday (and no driving on E. Salem or Moore St in the same area). I was there to photograph the two giant cranes that were dancing about the construction sites.

Part 1 concerns the HUGE crane that could be seen from all over town and seemed to tower over Manhattan in the view from my apartment, appearing to be ready to pick up the Empire State Building in the first picture.

In the next four pictures, it's preening in front of the well-lit city just after sunset.

The next morning, it's kind of middle-fingering the ESB. That's when I headed over to the Current on River construction site (can't they get a better name?) to shoot this colossus. It's quite impressive fully extended.

The last picture was taken Friday morning when it was in its sleeping position. It hasn't budged since.


Part 2's (next post) crane was two blocks away and caused some of the traffic problems.
