Ailsa’s Travel Theme—Misty

“Emergencies have always been necessary to progress. It was darkness which produced the lamp. It was fog that produced the compass. It was hunger that drove us to exploration. And it took a depression to teach us the real value of a job.” —Victor Hugo

I have been witness to the value of a compass on numerous occasions. This freighter is heading under the Golden Gate Bridge, into San Francisco Bay and bound for the Port of Oakland.

    Great image, Allan – those white buildings are placed just right to lead the eye!

      Those white buildings are actually containerized freight on the deck of the ship. I agree with you: they do lead the eye.
