Time-lapse video of the construction of a modern cruise ship in Nagasaki, Japan. The last part of the video is the ship being christened in Hamburg, Germany harbor during a festival they were having there.
I can’t stop watching this. The tinker-toy modularity of it, it’s fascinating. And, like watching heavy, large commercial airplanes take off, it’s hard to fathom that this thing floats with all of that steel in it.
Flickr member Steven McDougall posted this fantastic image of the MSC Splendida cruise ship docked on the coast of England, taken with his Fuji X-T1.
What makes this image interesting to me is the container cranes next to a docked passenger ship, and the foreground rocks. That ship must need deep water to dock so seeing shallow water up close and the ship docked in the background makes for a nice contrast.
My flickr contact kuvvy took this great reflection image of an ocean liner docked in Liverpool, UK with his Sony RX100. Brilliant reflection.
My flickr contact Helena has posted a fantastic image of a ship entering a bay at Fosen Peninsula outside of Trondheim in Norway taken with her Ricoh GR.
This is a wonderful time-lapse by Anthony and Christine Powell of the offloading of a supply ship at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Worth watching full screen. Amazing logistics in a very harsh environment.
