I also photographed her at New York on July 3 during the Statue of Liberty Centennial celebrations from a tour boat while she was anchored close to Governor Island.
Later in 2005, I photographed her in lay up in the James River Reserve Fleet as STATE if I remember well.

Somehow, the outlook reminds me of the other ship - Canberra.

Interesting photo! More so, because I was on board when it was taken, for the first of my three training cruises on board. I was also one of the cadets who painted the Statue of Liberty logo. We did it while docked in Montreal. That's why your one photo of the ship taken the week before doesn't show it. The brains of that operation was a year ahead of me. He was an enthusiastic cadet who went on to be a highly decorated helicopter pilot in the US Navy. Regrettably, he died in 2009 following a private plane crash, leaving a wife and two daughters.
