Emma Foss leaves a trail of good news in her wake

So I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph Seattle based tug Emma Foss and her well publicized barge containing the first of 12 modules for an oil refinary in Texas. The Modules are being constructed by Cianbro Corporation of Pittsfield Maine and barged 2400 nmiles to Port Arthur Texas. Emma Foss left Maine on 3\26 amid much fanfare and began her journey. To my suprise, she showed up at the mouth of Narragansett Bay on Saturday 3\28 and proceeded to dock at Davisville Rhode island to wait out the bad weather off shore. This presented a great oppurtunity to photograph something quite extraordinary as I was familiar with the move and was excited to capture her stop over in Narragansett Bay. 2 days later she left in almost perfect weather to continue her trip. latest reports have her some 300 nmiles south of Maine and forging on. Cianbro contacted me regarding my pictures and I subsequently sent them some and they provided a nice write up on their site http://www.cianbro.com/News/tabid/101/EntryID/203/Default.aspx as well as a link back to the rest of my pictures of Emma Foss . All in all, a wonderful 3 days!
