Working on the water

Water, the magic of it and the language of it: deep see docking, being on a boat on a river and feeling the change to the open sea in the wide estuary, small canals in old towns and quays along docks and large canals in tideless sea harbors. The Panamaxes -the size of a ship able to pass through the Panama canal -will anchor here and as most harbors they are planning for bigger and better ships the almost 400 meter long container ships of which about a hundred are being build... and for whom many harbors are competing by deepening and widening their capacity. Freight and passengers, money, fish and birds, all in competition for survival. That is why I have been silent for a while. Tomorrow more pictures...
