Cable Innovator

Cable Innovator

This is the ship that created the surreal colours that the goose swam into. I loved the colourful ship and the incredible clouds that day. It is interesting to see the patchwork of colour on the hull. They clearly have been using different batches of paint to do maintenance whenever they get a chance when it is in port or calm water. It appears to be a ship that lays cable in the ocean and is out of London England. Usually this dock is empty so...

Canada Goose

It is always different every time I go so it always feels like a...

I think it would make a great real estate car but my wife probably would not be convinced. I suspect my daughter Ashley...

I’m out of here!

I’m out of here!

I was out trying to get my 8000 steps in a year ago and came across these 4 seagulls all busy doing their hygiene or napping. I quickly brought my camera up and captured this image just as the one bird must have decided that I was getting too close and took off. The others all immediately snapped out of their daydreaming and followed their friend. It was a very foggy chilly day with not much happening or picture worthy but this picture made...
