We recently made a trip from the Puget Sound to Southern California to visit family. We discovered a last minute booking on a vessel re-positioning cruise from Vancouver, B.C, to Los Angeles. For less than the price of three days at motels along the interstate, we could spend two days at sea on a floating hotel, with meals included! Being the cheapskate I am, what's not to like? The most scenic part of the cruise was the golden hour sail-away: Vancouver Skyline Canada Place Cruise Terminal Canada Place Cruise Terminal and Vancouver Skyline The Love Boat Sulfur Terminal Lions Gate Bridge (Oosterdam Leading the Way, Outwardbound) Lions Gate Bridge (from the Poop Deck) The cruise: two days at sea; there were no ports-o'-call. One photo will suffice. For the remainder of the cruise, I decided not to pester fellow passengers with street-style shoot-and-runs. I'll save that for another time. Instead, I adopted a photographic project of using the ship as my subject, trying to find interesting geometry and patterns. A couple of examples: Seven-Thirty Vino Keno They hustled us off the ship pretty quickly in Los Angeles. I captured a couple of decent shots before we vacated our stateroom: USS Iowa Long Beach Morning We enjoyed the trip. Hope you enjoyed the pix.
