Ship Graveyards

Filed under: Uncategorized — Miriam @ 10:01 pm

I love Googlemaps satellite view. And I love finding odd places to take pictures. Even if the location is so far away that I will most likely never photograph it. My latest interest is in ship graveyards. Having done high school near the Welland Canal I have a fascination with big boats and the rotting boats must be big to be that visible from satellite views.

This is a ship Graveyard in Adelaide, Australia.  (There’s a lot more listed on the website to look for on Google Maps)

How about the extensive fleet of abandonned ships in the bay of Nouadhibou in Mauritania? I guess for years the local officials let companies abandon their ships in the harbour for the cost of a bribe. It got a little out of control.  There are hundreds of ships rusting in the water and on the beaches. Basically a giant trash heap. Is it sad that I would love to go out there for photography sake?

This one is in Staten Island, NY.  Road trip anyone?
