Three kings parades happened today in some parts of the world . . . including East Harlem, where camels walk through Manhattan streets.    This blog has had a fair number of posts about queens, so here are some kings, though not Gaspar, Melchior or Belthasar.

But here’s Ocean King, a foto I took back in June 2010.  I believe she’s built in 1950, and this was the only time I saw her in the sixth boro.

I caught this shot of King Douglas in the KVK in spring 2009;  tonight she’s crossing the Andaman Sea.

And finally . . . a stretch, I got this “below the keel” shot of Pe king back in January 2007, a whole seven years ago.  Click here to see fotos of Peking‘s first ever arrival in the sixth boro, almost 40 years ago, when there was great optimism about her future.
