Southbound on the Delaware Memorial Bridge

I love driving over big bridges, because I love to see what's in the water below. Over the Mississippi and Missouri, there are always tugs pushing (I know: tug = push, wtf?) huge groups of tethered barges loaded with coal or gravel or scrap metal or toenail clippings or whatever. Houston is dock after dock of huge container ships and the enormous cranes that un/load them. Camden is home to several Navy ships, as is San Diego. In this pic, I've thoughtfully provided you with a very long distance shot of a smallish oceangoing cargo vessel (the red smudge at 11 o'clock) and a visually overwhelming, as well as decidedly boring, foreground of a utilitarian-industrial nature.

You're very welcome!
