Hi all,

I will be visiting the subject some time next week, let's say Wednesday.

This also means I will be in and around Vancouver, BC from Tuesday 25 to Friday 28, so there's that standard beer offer.

Also, I will arrange for a car, so if anybody wants to join me for a trip from Vancouver to Powell River, they're welcome.

Cheers

Vlad

So, just like any April in South Korea, with yellow dust alert...

Seriously, this is not the circumstances usually encountered in Vancouver, BC, which I remember as having beautiful clear skies.

I hope this is resolved quickly.

As for the resizing of photos, I use Fast Stone viewer.

I tried to edit your photo a bit, using autocontrast in Picasa, but the result was very weird - this smoke really destroys the chance of a good photo.

Stay safe.

Cheers

(Ominous music)
They move unseen and unnoticed in the shadows...
They look just like ordinary people...
(Ominous music intensifies)
But when the time is right (when the AIS tells them)...
They show their true nature...
...THE SHIPSPOTTERS...
(Fade to black)

A: I will travel by car for more than an hour to see a ship, after I took an intercontinental flight for the same reason. Smiley
B: There's barely time to read a good book, as the places where I sit with a book are too busy with shipping.
C: Camera gear is usually in the car.
D: Sometimes strangers will come to me and ask me "Are you that guy that takes photos of ships?" (Or something like it, after all, I don't speak Japanese).
E: I will comment on ships' appearance, but will keep an open mind and accept any other opinion.
F: I also like photography, but don't really know how to use it.

There are also more worrying signs, and here's a legal disclaimer: nothing to be used as the proof of any wrongdoing. Smiley

When you trespass to take a good photo; when you enter a restricted area by screaming at the guard at the gate to let you through; when you photoshop a port entry permit to see a specific ship.

Also, when you tell the significant other that she's more important than the ships, but she has trouble believing you. Smiley

Soon I will visit the place where I hope to see container vessels compared to which this MSC oldie is just a spring chicken.

At 36 years of age, she is nowhere near the oldest container ships still sailing, courtesy of the Jones Act. Smiley

Rest in peace, Ken. Always fighting hard for the site and its members.

South Korea, Firefox. Really annoying.

Lean times for ship breakers...

Thanks, David.

It looks to be under 100 gt, but it puzzles me that it had escaped the scrutiny of other ship spotters in Japan - and usually it looks like no ship is safe from their cameras... Smiley

Cheers
