Ships In The Med

I love ships, harbours , docks 🙂 I took these back in March in Andalucía, at Algeciras, Gibraltar and Cádiz.

    There’s something romantic about those big ships heading out to sea, even if they’re only loaded with containers of…what is most likely…sherry?

        Yes I am. It’s sunny here, and an English friend has just said “it’s Pimm’s o’clock”.

    I like any machinery and love working out how things work. I can sit for hours at an airport trying to find a pattern that fits how they get a plane ready for flight, loading, luggage, people, all the filling and fussing. Same with ships, trains, factories with moving parts. I think I may have been a cat in some previous life before curiosity killed me….

      Hopefully not one that copped after having been shoved into an aircraft hold in one of those tiny carriers…!

      I’m fascinated by container cranes… my dad used to weld these things together, maybe that’s why 😉

        I think I’m old enough that any cat I could have been would have traveled in the cabin in the arms of a heavily furred lady sipping martinis.

        Any machinery will do for me, really what interests me is the interaction of processes. How the humans around it interact with it. Can I see a pattern developing?

    I must admit I DON’T like all those tankers out there. When I am sitting on the beaches in Gibraltar bay I wish they’d go away…..so the night time shot is my favourite, so there …..:-)

      Ha ha! We all have our foibles, don’t we? Having said that, tankers are a bit scary, but I can’t tell the difference between those an a normal cargo vessel. Ignorance is bliss 🙂

      You just made me google Savona… interesting… older than the Roman empire, home of Columbus, and seat of the Italian iron industry – it has everything 😉

        lol….that sounds more like Genova which is right down the coast from Savona. It was my first port of call in Italy back in 1970. Never heard of it being the seat of the Italian iron industry … when I lived there it was a second rate port, all the big stuff went into Genova itself. It was the port however where all the Fiat automobiles left for foreign lands. They also had quite a few tankers and ships from Japan.
