Anyway, whether it's a Mitch G. shot of an old forgotten depot or one like this, I always enjoy learning a little more of some of the historical aspects of it. But I guess it comes down to what your into when you look at some of these shots.
I myself like the historic part.
Here's another site I came across while looking up this one that I thought I would pass along

That's a pretty cool boat. It looks like it has a miniature golf course on the roof.

Here's the alternative:

It appears that I qualify for this gallery with a shot of this same boat (or her sister ship):

That is a cool picture of the Jerimiah O'Brian and the arch. I would have failed miserably trying to pull this one off since I'd be easily distracted by the Pompanito in front of her.

Thanks, Jon. One of these days I'll find some motivation and start submitting shots again.

Heh heh...yeah, might get rejected for "Poor lighting (Backlit): The boat is backlit or doesn't feature enough light on the bow or port."
