QE2

QE2
As I've not taken anything new this week, but have been scanning some old prints, here's another one from my film days taken with my trusty Zenit E!

This is the QE2, sailing up Southampton Water at sunset, circa 1989…

I'd like to know, in my latest article, I ask the question - Do you shoot film? :)

Wonderful old shot, Ian. I shot film for about 25 years before switching to digital.

I didn't think much of her at the time, but those lines are beautiful compared with what they're constructing today. Lovely tones, just right for the photo.

I've always been a fan of the lines of the QE2! She was always a stunning liner, which can be seen by comparison with today's floating tower blocks! I think today's designers need to go back to the drawing board!
