Thanks for that Derek, that will take you a while, I am slowly re-doing some of the better ones.

Regards Ken

Superb shot Ken,
Had not seen this one before, must re-browse all of your postings!

Hello Marc,
Thanks for your kind words, you are absolutely right about about the ships of days gone by, they
did, as you say, look like ships and were nice to see, whilst the QM2 is an impressive ship it cannot compare with the Queen Mary of old.
I am in the process of sorting some old slides out but it is time consuming but bear with me and
I hope to be able to share some more with you on the site shortly.
Best Wishes

Thanks for sharing these memories with us. There is a saying among the older generation of ship photogs such as you and myself " Those were the days when ships looked like ships". At least even if ships today don't share the design features of their forebears, they still attract more and more photographers as can be witnessed on this site. The "few" that we were 30-40 years ago have produced a whole new generation of photographers who most surely regret not having been born at the right time...

Thanks Brent,
They had a fine fleet in those days, in my opinion much better and more attractive than the modern Hapag-Lloyd.
Best wishes

Superb shot Ken.
