I took six of these fotos with my camera and four with another, given to me, that costs three times as much as mine.  Can you distinguish which is which?  I realize I might NOT YET be able to get top performance from the second camera.  Or maybe in this format it’s impossible to distinguish one from the other . ..  because they’re like oil and oil.  Or like these two tankers, contorted together like slugs in love.  Ever seen slugs in  . . . love?

Mahanadi Spirit gets assisted from her berth by

Charles D. McAllister, spun counterclockwise and

sent out

to sea with additional assist by Maurania III.

Next to move was Chemical Pioneer, with the same

assist team.

A bit later, sibling tankers came in to the dock.  Noble Express came in followed by

Silver Express.

Docking looked like this, one vessel almost merged with the other.

And can you tell which fotos were taken with camera A and camera B?

Answer is down a bit.

Slugs in love . . . I first saw it waiting at the commuter rail station a few weeks back at 6:15 am, thinking I should have had more coffee . . . .

Please . . . some feedback.  Be blunt and frank about the quality of fotos on this blog.  Pass the link onto any professional photographers even.  I’m re-examining my aesthetic.  And after seeing slugs in love, I can handle anything, even dragonfly love.

Answer:  The first three were with my usual camera, then three with camera B, then two one with mine, then one more with camera B, and the last two were with mine.    The two cameras in question were mine (SP 590-UZ Olympus) whose weight and zoom capability I love and a Sony Cyber-shot DSC R1.
