You are not seeing Captain John’s ship towed…

… not in my photo, anyway. Danica and I rode our bikes to the slip beside T&T Supermarket on Cherry Street. About 20 minutes before my photo, tugs towed the old floating restaurant off to the scrapyard… right past that gap.

Well, anyone would show you that. I show you where Captain John’s isn’t. I believe this is what’s called “gonzo” journalism, because the subject is gone when the reporter arrives.

For a more conventional (some would say successful) approach, here’s the Globe and Mail version.

  1. It would have been amazing if you caught the towing of Captain John in that small window ‘space’. But it’s a nice picture you took considering all the ‘industry’ surrounding T&T supermarket. Nice trip…

  2. Gonzo journalism! If you really want to indulge in Gonzo journalism I suggest you write a book called “Fear and Loathing on Duvernet” using your rarely used pen name Hunter S. Andersen. I look forward to a prepress copy.
