The Duck and the Dobbs Ferry Smoke Stack: The Rubber Ducky Project Week 9

The Duck and the Dobbs Ferry Smoke Stack features a rubber duck hanging out under the smoke stack on the north lawn of Waterfront Park in Dobbs Ferry, New York. At the beginning of 2013, I made a resolution to post a weekly photograph of a rubber duck. Because my daughter loved rubber duckies so much, my goal was to post a picture a week of one of her rubber ducks. Her ducks have showed up in some pretty unusual places over the past few years as part of The Rubber Ducky Project.

  • Molli Vandehey

    i did not know about this, this is adorable and ill be following it now!

  • I have always loved the idea of taking pics of a toy or other special object wherever we roam. I just keep forgetting to do this. I love how you chose the ducky and all the places it has been.

  • how awesome that you take a picture with a rubber duck, very cool idea.

    So neat!! I love ferrys!! We spent a vacation right by the mississippi one year and I loved watching all the barges and ferries go through!

  • I love the idea of taking something your child loves and incorporating it into your photos. It reminds me of the movie “Amelie” with the little garden gnome being photographed in landmarks throughout the world.

  • Barrie

    I love this idea of taking photos of what your daughter loves.

    These are the little things that kids will remember when they become adults

    • The duck lives in my purse and goes everywhere with me. I just have to remember to take pictures when we are out and about!

  • I actually collect rubber duckies! This is a super odd place for a duck to appear but its cute!

    It looks great except the smokestack. Other than that, it would be good.
