When people visit New York City, some of the best pictures they take of the skyline are from the Staten Island Ferry boat as it glides across the harbor. Dramatic views, cinematic lighting and occasional bold displays of nature create some amazing photo opportunities.
When you spend five days a week working as a deckhand on the Staten Island Ferry and you have an eye for a good picture, even better. My old high school buddy, Billy Thatcher, has been doing this for more than 16 years. Billy’s love of the sea and photography are captured in the artful pics below. Enjoy the journey.
