A great big ship needs great big anchors...would not, I repeat, would not want to be pulled off site onto a sandbar or a reef!

Your photos are again very well composed and show great colors!

Wow! Huge anchors. Thanks for the pictures.

Randy said...

Those look very heavy! Great shots.

I suppose you would need all that weight to keep that huge ship from moving.

No doubts whatsoever as to the size. I love anchors and the stories they beg to tell.

Anchors are just strong and impressive and mysterious, no matter how you long at them.

Anchors seem to be great subject! Shame there aren't many here:)

My Poems

My wallpaper art Babes!

Sexuality introduces Death to Being; and indeed Life simultaneously. This is the profound Myth of the Eden. The work of the Serpent. Bringing us out of "blessed" Standstill. So, in contrast to the mindless pietism of vulgar Christianity, my personal "Christo-Satanism" should be given serious thought by the Enlightened Few, the Pneumatics, the 1% Outlaws. The Light Bringer must be rehabilitated, beacause if not, the All of it simply doesn't make sense: true Catholicism is necessarily Meta Catholicism.

Bonjour dear friend,
This anchor is huge indeed, but I think it's normal for a big ship like
Amerigo Vespucci.Thanks so much for the different angles , your pictures are beautiful!
Hugs and happy weekend,

There is something romantic about anchors... bet they have good stories to tell. I really like the color story you tell with your photos today, VP.

It looks very heavy but I'm still surprised that it can anchor a whole ship :D
