That may seem like a funny title for this photo, but I don't know how else to describe the feeling I had standing on the deck of the Cannery Pier Hotel watching these two vessels pass by. The air was pleasant - not hot, not cold. The breeze was gentle and beckoning. I almost felt the way I do when I'm on the prow of a boat or ship cutting through the swells, free and without a care. I'd never been to this viewpoint before, and it was amazing. You don't need to enter the hotel to get this opportunity, just walk up to the railing beside the building, and you feel a part of the elements. What is hard to convey in any photo is the enormous size of the ship and the bridge, the feeling of vastness. Try clicking on the image, it may help. The land on the other side of the river is the state of Washington.
This is my contribution to Scenic Sunday, where you can view pictures from around the world that various individuals consider "scenic." It's an interesting concept. I love the detail photos of buildings, people, and everyday life. Maybe "scenic" lifts us a little bit outside ourselves and into another realm. That's how I felt at the moment I took this photo.
Well, I goofed up seriously here, but I've been a day early all week! Crazy. Today is Saturday, yes, it is. I'm not changing the post :)
