She was docked on the West Side of Manhattan above mid-town and so she had to sail down the Hudson. I was shooting from Hoboken (across the river from Midtown) and photographed her as she went down the river. What REALLY struck me as I was working on the photos is HOW MUCH CRAP THERE IS IN THE ATMOSPHERE. The colors in the Queen Mary 2 were so much brighter than those in the buildings on Manhattan only a couple of hundred yards to a half mile further away.
I took these photographs today 21 May 2010. You can find more from this set, as well as other photos of the Queen Mary 2 and the QE2 that I took in October of 2008, at my Flickr site.
