05-15-17 In an attempt to hear all those who commented on my forum posts, I will change my posting style to a monthly activity report as opposed to a report on each day I do something. Hopefully this will allow three things-
- Trip reports that don't get too long.
- Not cluttering up the trip report forum.
- Still letting others now what I am seeing and doing.
Please understand, I take pictures and post them as a hobby and way of showing my interest in all things ships. I am not a professional photographer, though I am trying to improve my quality. Nor I am trying to stir up a lot of controversy. If the membership feels like I am causing a lot of problems, please let me know and I will try to change or if needed, leave shipspotting.com. Thanks.[/i][/b][/b][/i][/u]
