Maybe you explained it in an earlier post, but why is the ship covered with cartoons?

Randy said...

That is cool. So glad you captured them.

Dina said...

Very interesting. I guess I never thought about where ships get their fuel. Thanks for the new word bunker/ing.

Love that first shot. Looks like a winter sky, almost a snow sky.

The sky does add a lot of drama to the second photo. I do like the colorful ship, it looks quite festive.

I didn't know Giglio was an island! I once had a student with the last name Giglio so now I'm wondering if his family came from there.
