Facebook let me down; Blogger didn't

I wanted to post this picture on my personal Facebook page, but despite three attempts, either Facebook or my Internet service provider wouldn't let me.

So here it is, the big old Marathon Petroleum Co. towboat Kentucky as seen this evening on the Kanawha River.

There's a story about why I took this picture at this spot. After I typed it three or four times while trying to load the picture, it got more boring with each telling. So forget why I got this picture and just enjoy it if you can.

One of the boring parts of the story is why I shot this with a cell phone and not a digital SLR. But who really cares, you know?

Nameboard in black and white

This is the nameboard of the M/V Charleston, one of the prettiest boats you'll find on the Ohio River. The boat's exterior colors and black, white and gray, so it was a natural fit to convert the original image to black and white to see it compares.

Pretty good, I think.
