USCGC Taney (WPG/WHEC-37) is a United States Coast Guard High Endurance Cutter, notable as the last ship floating that fought in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Named for Roger B. Taney, formerly Secretary of the Treasury and Chief Justice of the United States, she is one of two Treasury-class (out of seven total) Coast Guard Cutters still afloat. The Taney was launched on June 3, 1936 and served her country for 50 years before being decommissioned in 1986. Today, the 327-foot long cutter is anchored in the Inner Harbor and serves as a museum ship as part of the Baltimore Maritime Museum. The Taney saw action in both theaters of combat in World War II, serving as command ship at the Battle of Okinawa, and as part of fleet escort in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. She also served in the Vietnam War in Operation Market Time, patrolled the seas working in drug interdiction and fisheries protection and participated in the search for Amelia Earhart. The Baltimore Maritime Museum (BMM), covering Piers 3 and 5 of the Inner Harbor, includes the , USS Torsk (SS-423); the screw-pile lighthouse, Seven Foot Knoll Light; and the lightship, Chesapeake. National Register #88001826 (1988)

This is what happens when one gets too complacent with the film developing process... I took the top off the dev tank absentmindedly before even putting the developer in... doh! The unplanned exposure of the neg gives the photo an old quality, and not in a good way. Regardless, it's a sucky photograph so I couldn't have done any more damage. This was also my first time using the Arista EDU Ultra B&W for 35mm, available from Freestyle in Hollywood. I really like the 120 version and wanted to see how the 35mm (supposedly rebranded Fomapan) held up. I think it's supposed to be more like the previous shot in my stream. Decent tones, and it dries really straight! This means I don't have to put them under a stack of books overnight to flatten out. Will probably keep trying a few other films until I find one that absolutely blows me away.

Baltimore inner harbor obviously. I have been experimenting a lot in photoshop recently. In fact to help me along with that I picked up a Wacom tablet, which has taken some time to get used to. And this picture is really the product of that. Done in a sort of Ansel Adams style, as far as the high contrast and black and white is concerned. Certainly not the subject. I think it works with the ship and the sky, but the background is definately out of place.

I assume that these are cleats for tying off ropes. They were mounted on an exterior wall of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter U.S.S. Taney, which is on display in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. However, when I first saw them, I was immediately struck by how much they look like faces with their tongues sticking out.

This is a rather ominous warning on a floor hatch abord the U.S. Coast Guard cutter U.S.S. Taney, which is now on display in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. I've known a lot of engineers in my life, and very few of them were ever gas free!
