Strong optical illusion is an understatement ..... you really need to look at the photo for a long time, you need to read all the comments and understand the ships too .... real fun photo .... and very good indeed.

|@CHouston count the smokestack and you will check there the 6th house is|

|Why do I count 6 ships, but only see 5 houses?|

|Brilliant shot! Even though they weren't terribly economic due to large engine, the B class were lovely ships to sail on. To do 32 knots was a nice experience :)|

Stunning. Unusual. Surreal. Everything.
Best Regards, tvtech

@Jadran: indeed, SEALAND PERFORMANCE was a member of the infamous series of "Econships", ordered by United States Lines and used in a round-the-world service, which failed miserably (at least partly due to the too low service speed of the Econships) and ended up bankrupting the line.
In later years, as the cost of fuel kept rising, the slow but relativly fuel-efficient Econships actually did very well and they all had pretty decent careers in the end.

Ref. Ralph: I looked once again much more deeper into the pic, and as per your guiding description, I admit that your very well comment is absolutely correct.
Ref. Seadevil: OK in general, but only to point that the Sealand Performance (with here three more sisters; not on the pic) built in South Korea.

|@ jadran: actually not, she is the third in line (the only one with a black hull), but there is a strong optical illusion in this pic, so I understand where you are coming from!|
|seadevil on Jul 10, 2012 11:39 (10 months ago)|
Thanks for sharing, all build in Volkswerft Stralsund ...

|The SEALAND PERFORMANCE on this exceptional pic is the first lined ship looking from the front view.|

|to amend what Bob said, the Maersk B-boats are all back in service(they were chartered to MSC, im not sure about now), but the Sealand Performance was sent to the breakers in China at the same time.|

|Simply great photograph.|

|Fantastic photo from a fantastic location. Last time I visited Loch Striven (absolutely miles from anywhere) it was full of 'L-class' Shell ULCCs and Ocean Group gas tankers.|

|Amazing shot & great find!|
