Kicking Back, Watching The World Go By . . . . . .




M/V The World left Unalaska this afternoon and here are four very different looks of the departing vessel.  I like the one on top, it looks magical and surreal, and of course Steve's Rule of Photography #83 - any image is improved by including a passing bird!

How did we miss you? We were there too! On the dock..then on the beach watching it leave. that is one of the coolest vessels I've ever seen.

i will come there someday. i can't keep looking at the scenery on your blog and not ever breath the air or point my own camera at those snow covered ridges.

breathtaking.

I was there too! Well, I hiked up the "signs" road on Ballyhoo..you know, where the CG does their grafitti? It was pretty awesome watching that gorgeous ship leave the dock...I didn't have my camera, but my mind's eye captured it. Thanks for the photos, Steve!

If you thought the outside was nice... You should have seen the inside. It was UNREAL!!!!

I heard about the inside - amazing! You can also see photos of the inside on their website.

Good job...thanks Steve

Its an interesting concept....cruise the world, come aboard or leave at any time.

They ever offer an onboard broker for leasing your condo when you are not going to be on the ship..

Beautiful photos, Steve. I'm not much for cruise ships but that top photo almost makes me feel romantic about them.

Steve...I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again. You really should publish a book of photos from your island experiences. I too love the first pic...it truly does have a surreal or fantasy aspect. I also like your "rock" pic. Rocks are so primordial and ancient. I always think Stonehenge or Easter Island when I see pics like the one you took.
