Bowsprite put up an interesting post recently of shots made sans tripod showing ships passing in the night as some runny ooze (oozy run?), but it’s pretty and she herself makes comparisons with fruitcake, which I like.  But I wish to show here that ships do NOT always pass in the night, do NOT always approach and separate without making a difference or lasting impression.  They also pass in the day, in the effulgence of 10 am springtime warm sun.  Like Zim San Francisco,

Some interesting statistics on the decline in shipping demand and prices can be had in this article from a recent issue of the New York Times.

Remember . . . ships do NOT only pass in the night.  I prefer mine in daylight, if I might choose.
