Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters (at Sea)

Posted on

 

Thousands of ships sail through the Great Lakes, a major passageway from the U.S. and Canada and a gateway to the rest of the world. Clashing with mother nature’s stormy seas and mazes of ice and rock, these giants along with their crew are forces to be reckoned with. They are hauntingly beautiful to watch on a foggy night and spectacular sights on a sunny day.

Letters adorned on their bow and stern tell of their origin.  Some are quite obvious while others depend on our knowledge of faraway places.

  2. We have been fascinated with ships and the men who sail them at least since Homer spun his tales. This is a beautiful set of images that touches that ancient fascination.

    Try this from Raymond Carver

  3. Some of these are huge – and yet elegant in their own way.
