The Group Shot II


    Sometimes the group shot happens organically.  It all comes together with little or no production.  It's more of a feel, an emotion. Pride and satisfaction can be a great motivator.  Everyone proud of their part and happy to share that with peers.  This is part of the crew that built the Isla Bella - shot several hours prior to launch.  There's a formality and familiarity to these groupings - one that seems  passed down from generations of shipbuilders. This is one of 3 frames, no compositing, no production.

Alan G....getting close.

Looks like the Alan G Tug is getting close to making it out of dry dock. They're going to plunk it back into the water on Thursday. Can't wait to be there for that.. In the meantime I've been down a few time recently and to check out the progress.
