Scale

I like the contrast of the huge cranes of North Harbor in the background and the small sailboats docked at the Manila Yacht Club in the foreground in this Manila Bay scene.

You know I love boats of every size and shape, so you have to show us more 'seaside' photos. Nice contrast of the pleasure boats against the huge cranes of the harbor.

Lowell said...

You just can't go wrong photographing sailboats on the water but I wouldn't call them "small." Yikes...

Well, I guess compared to the cranes they are small.

Love the photo, Hilda. Great muted colors.

Those cranes look like Star Wars Droid machines - or like Transformers coming to play with the boats! I love it!
