Photo Finish – Monochromatic Details

Today’s Photo Finish is a look at monochromatic details around the United States and Canada.

Lighthouse lens. Looking past the fourth order Fresnel lens in Pemaquid Point Light to the churning sea. The first lighthouse built here was lit in 1827, but structural problems caused it to be replaced by the current tower in 1835. The keeper’s house is now a fisherman’s museum. Pemaquid Point is the lighthouse featured on the 2003 Maine state quarter. Bristol, Maine. (Nathanael Miller, 26 July 2018)
Hangar door gearing, NAS Lakehurst, New Jersey. Each of the hangar doors is a free-standing structure which required two 20-horsepower electric motors to open. Hangar No. 1 was completed in 1921 and is 966 feet long, 350 feet wide and 224 feet high. It was built on the former Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst (modern Lakehurst Maxfield Field) to house the giant airships of the 1920s and 1930s (two could fit side-by-side inside it at the same time). Later it was home to a flight deck simulator used to train flight deck personnel. Half a mile from Hangar 1’s gigantic doors the Hindenburg crashed on May 6, 1937, ending the era of the great rigid airships. Manchester Township, New Jersey. (Nathanael Miller, 18 July 2018)

Ship’s name plate. A visit to Ontario will reveal the lovely MS Norgoma just across the water from the United States. MS Norgoma went to sea in 1950 as a vehicle and passenger ferry on the Great Lakes. She was retired in 1974 and is a museum ship in Sault Ste. Marie. Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada.
