"open that door...I'm coming in!!!" Or on. Looks like the characters are going to propel the ship as breakneck speed. You are right about the graphic. Terrific sequence.

Yawning with hunger, more like! And hyperactive Loonies is right! :)

Jacob said...

I really luv the Disney characters!

But the maw of the ferries is almost frightening the way you composed these!

Delightful shots, VP! Great colors! You must have recovered from your gray winter skies!

I've seen some airplanes with big maws like these, too.

Perfect title! :D

I liked these yawning ships!

Jacob: these aren't Disney characters - Bugs Bunny, Sylvester & Tweetie Pie - "Looney Tunes"? Warner Bros?

Hysterical. This isn't a serious ship, is it?

Rob and Mandy said...

Although they are really good photos, the 2 first ones make me want to yawn... Sorry about that, should have slept more.
And the last one.... When, where, let's go now, fast!!! Guess they forgot Speedy Gonzales!

Jacob said...

@ Wolynski - Of course, you're right! Damn! How could you're always right! :-)

il colore del cielo e del mare è bellissimo.
ed è inevitabile pensare all'estate.

I LIKE the title of this post. The ferry does look like it's yawning. Interesting decor. ;-)

Where the top two boats preparing for a "colonoscopy?" (I sell health insurance...)

Stine in Ontario said...

Definitely looks like it's yawning. Great title!

Saretta said...

More than a yawn, I thought they might bite me!

Lois said...

I love the one with the Looney Tunes characters--especially the Roadrunner!

The remake of jaws Livorno style. Boy am I tired! It's contagious!

Whoever designed and built the Moby Freedom will not be happy with its current outfit. Then again, the purpose of a shipping company is not to please the shipbuilder.

Wow. the first first two shots look like giant sharks ready to swallow everything in their path.

Great cartoon graphic on the side of the ship. I've always been a big fan of Warner Bros. cartoons.

Ilse said...

I remember this boat. I like the gaping maw for the vehicles to enter.

JM said...

Great angles! They look like monsters with their tongues out!

Dina said...

How funny! You captured their personalities so well.

I have special love for Italian ships. I made aliyah to Israel in 1968 on the good ship "Enotria" sailing to Haifa for a whole week in the Mediterranean.

:) Perfect description, they do look like they're yawning. Don't step in or you're gonna be swallowed.
