to close for comfort - a short story
Lens: SMC M 2/85 Camera: K200d Photo Location: Shanghai/China 
Posted By: volley, 08-10-2010, 11:59 AM

I had posted the first shot already showing the intense traffic on the Huangpu river in Shanghai

So this very well maintained vessel, secured by a tug boat caught my attention.

I thought the rusty color might look interesting when passing the Pudong skyline

A little further down the river there is a pretty sharp right hand turn. I'm not (a) Sailor, but to me it looked like the captain of the vessel and the captain of the tug boat had a different game plan ...

Well, somehow they figured it out, although for a short while it looked like they would hit the cruiseship (the beautiful "Legend of the Seas") right in the middle ...

Now, that would have been a spectacular shot ...

Thanks for looking

Ting looks like it's going to sink- it definitely needs a new paint job!
