I agree with Robert. It looks like is following some kind of music.

Wonderful ship dances. I like pics 2 and 3 because I never see these angles here - and the color is so nice!

I do like the turning shots. Very neat. Amazing that the little tug can pull and guide the much larger container ship. MB

Terrific, VP, well done! I can almost see this big ship turning... Funny, I see a lot of container ships and big ports, but I've never watched a one turn like this.

Beautiful. We've been listening to Hitch HIker's Guide and I've been thinking about you and Trillian.

Excellent photos of this ship moving about. I love the colors on the cargo.

I'm fascinated by how these huge ships can turn on a dime! I used to watch them in Mazaatlán, México for that very reason. Good sequence of shots!

The first photo is wonderful! It's like a film :D There are so many containers on the Porto di Livorno...kind of looks like a whole bunch of rubic cubes :D

Nice photos, and I really like the last two!:) Have a nice weekend!

Wonderful pictures. It so makes me want to see all this in person.

Amazing how the tugs work and how the mountain of containers does not make a ship top heavy.
