Readying For Action
A jack-up-rig takes on provisions at the Harbor of Refuge at Port Lavaca, Texas, preparing to report for duty in the Gulf of Mexico. Taken with a Canon AE 1 film camera and a Vivitar 70-210 zoom lens. The picture was digitized for publication in my internet magazine, "Texas Waterways." I started the e-zine in 1990 and kept it online for about a year. In the old days of the internet it was not possible to update the magazine myself so I had to pay a company to make monthly changes. At a cost of about $900 a month without advertising it became cost prohibitive. The publication received thousands of hits a month from all over the world.
