I like those lips!

Hilda said...

Heehee! Did you give her a kiss? ;)

Looks like a fun party boat!

Oh how weird. Crazy stuff. MB

Gli occhi sono gli "occhi apotropaici" tipici del mediterraneo orientale, dell'adriatico e penso anche dell'antica cina; erano messi a prua per allontanare gli spiriti maligni o il malocchio, l'aggiunta delle labbra fanno ricordare ad una polena

Dina said...

A funny face indeed, and you found a good angle to photograph it.
Is that the painter's seat dangling??

VP said...

@ Dina - That dangling thing signals the presence of a bulbous bow underwater.

Her lips are sealed

Very seductive.

Gunn said...

I knew I had seen her before.....
She is beautiful, and I like the way you have photographed her!:)
Enjoy your weekend!

I have a close friend who collects lips, but I don't think this one will fit in her collection. :-D As always, VP, excellent captures... but I can't say I'm impressed by the cartooning of the adult world. Or is this a cruise line targeting children...?

At least they are not 'loose lips' ( :

Her livery is so interesting and colourful!
God bless you!

Cool ship. Seems like a fun boat to cruise on.

Unica e molto originale,bella

VP said...

The reference to Verdi's Aida and the class of the ships (Sphinx) point to something Egyptian...
I have read that this brand caters almost exclusively to the German-speaking market.

joo said...

It's the cutest ship I've ever seen:)

Leif Hagen said...

Oh those lips! She's a beauty!

Francisca said...

Germans, huh...? Hmmm... well the only thing that comes to mind is something I'd better keep to myself or it will surely come back to bite my butt. :-D

Kaori said...

Ooh a sexy lady! :D

Svenske Floyd said...

Fishing boats in Malta have eyes. If lips too, I can't remember.

Dina said...

A bulbous bow! I would never have guessed that in a million years.
Thanks!

Kate said...

And, who says that Germans don't have a sense of humour? I think the paint job is pretty whimsical.
