  3. Wonderful! Great location. The Tall Ships passing the Military vessels is spectacular!
    All the photos from this day show how special this event is.

  4. Mitch, These images of 2012 Op Sail reflect your infinitely keen eye for photography and art. great pics!. I feel like I am there. Great shots of FT rising with the magnificent vessels sailing or chugging by. YTFM. You’re the freakin man. Whatever images you post, I review them all. We should discuss a grand coffee table book, but not of coffee tables. The Newtown Creek debris shots may make one reach for the Pepto and not the hazelnut creamer. These OpSail photos are dynamic.
    Cheers, Rich M. See you on the sixth borough.

  5. Loved the photos but something occurred to me – once again. Is it wise to have fly-overs and air shows of closely positioned and mach1 aircraft in cities and beaches. The chances of a collision or malfunction may be minimal – the pilots are super trained – but the consequences would be devastatingly disastrous. Just an idle thought.
