That's a beauiful composition Lou, nice work!
Is it in an amusement park or something?

Nan Sheppard said...

Oh cool! Tell us more! is she a replica?

Hockeymandad said...

Is that next to the Yakov Smirnoff theater? That would seem oddly amusing to me.

I once read that the faulty plating (welds) of the Titanic's hull caused the ship to sink. Bad craftsmanship will get you every time.

This is a great shot! We're snowed in today so the blue sky and puffs of clouds look appealing too.

Sarah said...

Hi Lou! I think this is a stately viewpoint.

Also, I was so curious about this word, 'Ndinombethe,' and found the meaning...so truly beautiful.

Momisodes said...

Wow! That is one impressive vessel. I love the angle you shot this from.

Hyphen Mama said...

I, too, am curious what the story is behind her. Replica? Amusement park?

Heather said...

This is very cool! I love the way the sky looks behind the ship. PS: did you know they are making the Titanic movie into a 3D movie? CRAZY!

Jientje: It's an attraction in Branson, Mo. It's a replica of the fron half of the ship.

Nan: Yes, she is. Of the front half.

Hockeymandad: Actually, it's just down the street a little ways.

Moneythoughts: The plates were brittle and the rivets were, too. Plus the watertight bulkheads didn't go all the way to the top deck.

Joyce-Anne: I'm glad you liked it.

Sarah: I stole the word from Tash - my friend from Trinidad. Her blog has been on hiatus for so long now. I miss her.

Momisodes: Yeah - it looks real, huh?

Hyphen Mama: She's just an attraction - not real, doesn't float and has no stern.

Heather: 3D? Cool.

It looks very real. Wow.
