About a month ago I was almost arrested when I attempted to take a photo of this ship near an oil refinery. Since 9/11 security is very tight and I should have realized that.
Perseverance paid off and I finally caught it in the middle of the River today. I think it is a foreign ship and was back in Louisiana for a refill. I was fascinated by the color. The little tugboat is escorting it. I find it amazing that such a little boat can be so powerful.
A closeup of a little tugboat can be seen at http://www.pbase.com/image/42386204. In fact, the little tug's picture is probably the better of the two, as usual.
