Being from Seattle, I like ferry boats. The Staten Island ferry made me feel right at home when I was last in NY.

And a helicopter up in the sky. Happy theme day.

Kate said...

I first rode ferries on Lake Michigan as a child and I've loved them ever since!

Kris McCracken said...

That really is a magnificent photo. Amazing view!

Nice shot at the waterfront. One could spend a couple of hours watching the tranquil waters and the beautiful sky.

Happy theme day!

Chris said...

What time of day did you take this, Ming? It's a very relaxing shot.

Ming the Merciless said...

Chris, this is from the archive since I totally forgot about the theme day until last night.

I believe it was taken around 6 PM during late August 2006.

Monika N. said...

A beautiful view! I was so *thrilled* that the Staten Island ferry is free of charge.

Marie-Noyale said...

The Staten Island ferry is the only way for me to see the south tip of Manhattan from the water.
You got a nice and different perspective there.

isabella said...

The sky and the water are very simpatico ;-)

(the ferry is free of charge?)

marley said...

I know its about water but I love the sky! I know, I'm odd!
