Nice collection! Some great skyline shots but I really enjoyed the photos of the port areas too. I think I admire cargo ships and port facilities for the same reason I like skyscrapers - I'm impressed by their size and scale. A cargo ship or cruise ship is kinda like a skyscraper just tipped on its side. And what makes it even more interesting is that they are constantly coming and going, so its like an ever changing skyline! I started a thread ages ago about the variety of different ships that visited our local port but seemed no one was interested. Anyway, I digress
