Two good shots of the ship and its crew. Even though I am not a sailor, this would have been a good assignment.

Michelle said...

Ready for some R&R!

Randy said...

I love the second photo and the way the colors of their coats match the ship.

There's something startling about the new-ness of the uniforms and the youth of the sailors.

Pardon if I have sent you this already, VP. My head is starting to spin a little ...

The City Daily Photo Blog Theme Day for October is nearly upon us. Have you, as yet, given some thought to your interpretation of our theme, ‘Silhouette’? There are a number of meanings to this word, and there is no need to feel restricted to the meaning in the English language. If you are a member of Face Book, you are welcome to post your contribution to the CDPB group page at http://www.facebook.com/groups/2628431329/. If you are not a member of Face Book, you may care to post at http://cdpbthemeday.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/silhouette-cdpb-for-october.html.
As you post your October Theme contribution, please vote for your choice of the five suggested themes for November (My Street, Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, The Water’s Edge, Ageing (dis)gracefully, or The Thrill of the Dance). You may vote at either location, but please only vote once! The results will be conflated at the close of voting on Monday 8th October.

It is always nice to put a human face on these great ships.

Both are great but the top composition is my favourite. Well done, VP!

Permission to go ashore and spread havoc... the women included. hahahaha I'd rather be sailing? NOT!
