I am not sure if it was intentional, but this image definitely has a face. A rather Viking one.
It is nice to see a ship being launched on the Mersey.

I was in a favourable spot and manage to shoot a few seconds of the launch in video . If  you watch this take a look at the stern tug ,I call this working really hard.   https://www.facebook.com/david.wooley.501/videos/2145492972360917/?fref=gs&dti=1865757947072215&hc_location=group

I was down there just by pure chance on a college 50th anniversary reunion that evening, and I and my friends went down to the Albert dock and saw what was going on, so took some photos and video on my camera......will down load them this afternoon but don't think the video will come out as the sun was facing me at the time......but got a few shots and some from the stripey ferry...........Snowdrop I think she is called, as we took a trip on her as well...

then you miss out on a whole world of everything out there......like someone saying NO NO NO to fricassee tripe and onions in a cream Sause without trying it, and only taking a third party opinion who also hasn't tried it...


a very tunnelled vision IMHO. {:-{ :((

The launch , she never moved ! ! the tug needed to 'snatch' her off the ramp , and then nearly got run over when the lines got tangled , he was giving it everything to get out of the way . . .
