Abandoned Great Lakes Tugboat James A. Hannah

I was exploring Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, on a rainy weekend and wandered over to the various harbors and marinas in the area. Docked in a secure pier along Lake Ontario were several workboats. I took some images by reaching over the secure fence line. The rain and reflections of this old vessel created a great moody Great Lakes photograph.

The old working tugboat in this image is James A. Hannah. She is a large 149 foot tugboat constructed in 1945 by Marietta Manufacturing of Point Pleasant, WV. The working ship served the U.S. Army from 1945 to 1964 when she was sold to the Gartland Steamship Company. The James A. Hannah was then brought to the Great Lakes, where it continues in operation today.

Originally built as a steamship, she was converted to diesel power in 1967. In 1976, the Hannah Marine Corp purchased the working tugboat, which then renamed her James. A. Hannah.

The Hannah Marine Corp went bankrupt in 2009, and the vessel was put up for sale. Over the years, McKeil Marine of Hamilton purchased the boat to use it for parts and is currently part of a group of vessels in the process of being scrapped in Hamilton.

Which is better, TIFF or JPG, for art prints?

One of the most frequently asked questions is what is the difference between JPG and TIFF? I have written an article discussing the difference. Click here for more information.
