Long Lense Sniping in Alamitos Bay - Gray November Day

I spun through Long Beach again today and had to take some more photos of the Alamitos Bay operation.

I wonder if they know I'm taking pictures of their boats.

Hey, do you guys know that I'm taking pictures of your boats?

Hmm, I wonder if they read this blog.

Hey, do you guys read this blog?

Well, I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I know some of the gondoliers do.

Hiding behind small sailboats, a sandolo and pupparin wait for passengers.
The double-morso forcola and pedana (foot-wedge) of the pupparin can be seen with the black sandolo in front.

Canvas covers of different colors make even covered boats interesting to look at.
Signs that Christmas is coming are present, including the floating trees in the background.

When will you post up on the bridges and catch us at our worst?

Gondola Greg said...

I'll definitely make a point to do that.
Let me know when you expect to be on the boat and picking your nose.
I'll be there...with a long lens!

Present and accounted for... that was the night of the strange southerly winds, wasn't it?

Gondola Greg said...

Yes, the winds were odd that evening.
November always seems to bring us some "variety" in the weather.

At some point guys, when you least expect it, Gondola Greg will ambush you somewhere along the route.
And if Murphy's Law is in effect you'll be picking your nose on an unwashed boat and having an amazingly "bad hair day".
