I never thought there’d be a series starting here . ..  but she did take most of the photos below, so here goes . . . Quantum of the Seas  (hereinafter just Q) heading from Bayonne for sea but NOT before doing a doughnut in front of  . . . Lower Manhattan.

Seeing Q turn in its length without the assistance of any tugs is remarkable, especially when contrasted with some of the SS United States and SS Leviathan pics here.

Smaller tour boats scatter around the rotating Q.

Click here for bowsprite’s shortie audiovideo of Q‘s whistle . . .  which to me sounds like a plucked bass chord.  Click here for her drawing of SS Normandie.

As to the “more” referred to in the title . . . I took these the other day at the LIRR station near my snow cave . . . the day after Juno left NYC mostly alone.  Rail movement creates so much more visual turbulence than water traffic.
