I keep finding the need to restate that fact. I am a heavy machinery fan though, and cranes make for some interesting machinery.
In the course of my Project 365 travels, I found both of these in the last two days. In the end I liked my fog shots better, so they got the nod. I couldn’t not share these, though.
While searching for good fog photos on the harbor, I found this bad boy at a local marina. I’ve no idea of the M-designation, but it’s a formidable piece of equipment. (‘Marine’ refers to the business, whose name and number I’ve removed.)
Just down the road a bit from the 5-ton monster is this deuce-and-a-half, with an aftermarket modification. I’ve seen it out around town a number of times. I’m not sure what the owner does with it, or even who he is.
