The town is fairly well known as it was almost completely wiped out by one of the largest tornadoes ever recorded - this was in 1974. Huge death toll. The town recovered and the downtown is very open and parklike unlike almost all U.S. cities and they have miles and miles of bike paths. But no ships!

Also a good Scrabble word!

The cathedral's glittering on coronation day
Crowned heads and cardinals under military sway
I approach the altar slowly in a humble shroud
to receive the acclamation of the loyal crowd

Give me power over people in a palace
with a permanent guard
and the flags unfurled
Give devotion, dedication, celebration
not some cheap charade
and I'll rule the world
All of these delusions of grandeur
because they said 'We don't understand you'
and I want revenge

In audience I receive the media's pleas
They kiss my ring in interviews on bended knees
In victory I'm magnanimous and charming when
I speak exclusively at length to CNN

About power over people in a palace
with a permanent guard
and the flags unfurled
With devotion, dedication, celebration
not some cheap charade
I will rule the world
All of these delusions of grandeur
because they said 'We don't understand you'
and I want revenge

Ring the bells, tell everyone
Revolution can be fun

Pet Shop Boys, "Delusions of Grandeur" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Really? Must check that out. The company with these ships only have woman-names on their ships.
Xenia, unusual name, though
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 05, 2009 09:21 (9 years ago)
Merci boucoup, salut!

Tomas, not that stiff in French, hahahaha!

Der koenig aus Hamburgia und Niedersachsen, i dub you. Now keep up the good uploading. The royal provider of photos.
Jens Boldt on Mar 05, 2009 07:51 (9 years ago)
No, no, you're wrong. There's no great plan behind my photos! :-D
ANL Esprit and Svendborg Maersk simply were the only two big container vessels Hamburg inbound yesterday (at least in the daylight). The only thing I plan is that I am looking for (container) vessels I haven't taken any photos of before I go out.
But nevertheless thanks for your kind words. You know my opinion concerning your photos! :-)

And I don't want to be king of the the site! If I were to be king then let's make it King of Germany! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nice photo -- I was drawn to the photo by the ship's name -- there is a city in Ohio named Xenia!
Martin Palardy on Mar 05, 2009 01:19 (9 years ago)
Nice one Tomas !

Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 04, 2009 21:22 (9 years ago)
Thanx mister!
Saw your shots earlier today, i must say i am impressed. I find your shots much better than mine. It seems you are much better to plan them, where i take shots more at random. You keep going, an you'll be king of the site. True.
Jens Boldt on Mar 04, 2009 21:15 (9 years ago)
It seems to have been a nice day at least from the south of Norway to the north of Germany! Very nice catch, Tomas.
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Mar 04, 2009 20:31 (9 years ago)
Thanx alot, one nice ship, nice weather, total package, haha!
Frank Behrends on Mar 04, 2009 20:18 (9 years ago)
A nice catch my friend 8-)
Thanks for posting.
