Photo Finish – Unusual Views
Museum ships are popular attractions in the United States. Few artifacts are as impressive, imposing, and imminently capable of transporting a visitor back in time as is a ship from a bygone age. Panoramic photos of such vessels are always favorite souvenirs, but what happens if you take a closer look? What facets of the ship’s personality are revealed by looking at an unusual view of the vessel? What connection can one make with the daily life of sailors and technology past by focusing one’s attention on a single detail?
Here is a brief tour of some of the United States’ more popular museum ships, but each one is examined from a single, unique perspective. Sometimes the shot is used to emphasize the sheer size of the vessel; other times the perspective provides a glimpse into the daily life of the sailors who used to live aboard the ship.
Never underestimate the power of an unusual view (be it an extreme close-up or an usual angle or perspective) to tell your readers a powerful story.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
