I'm not sure that the sailor's life is one that I could lead. Terrific takes on these two ships.

That second picture almost looks like a toy ship. I like it!

Riding high.

Do you take these photos from the shore or from another ship?

Randy said...

I wonder why they named that one Gloria.

Jack - I took both photos from the shore...

I'm not sure if I envy your steady hand, your tripod or your camera - but pictures like these are so wonderfully dramatic I wish I had taken them. Jealousy!

Oi, I'm feeling seasick just looking at the second photo.

VP, these are really great!

Bella la seconda immagine anche se sgranata, il mare mosso affascina più di quello calmo! Ciao, Arianna
