SURVEYOR'S NOTEBOOK

Sunday Morning, the Life of a Surveyor

By Rik van Hemmen

At Martin & Ottaway, we all love being part of the maritime community, but maritime is 24 hours per day. Therefore a call may come in at any time. This time it was Sunday Morning, just while I was getting ready to survey a boat for my personal use. So I modified the schedule for the day and swung by Port Newark.

It was a crane collapse, fortunately there were no injuries, so we can just think of it as one of those things. The survey itself did not take long and the parties involved were all professionals so I had a chance to look around for a moment.

I took this picture for purely aesthetic reasons. It shows a collapsed crane, but what I really liked is the full palette of colors and the almost unnatural crowding of shapes and angles.
