It’s one thing to get used to living by the sea and everything that comes with it, such as constantly seeing boats, watching the sea shift from high tide to low tide and vice versa, feeling the smell of the sea, or even hearing the horn from boats at all times of the day. It’s another to take personal notice of big ships that dock off port for days at a time. Such was the case last month when I first noticed a few large ships docked at sea, very early in the morning. I was on my way to school when I caught sight of these ships, which looked strangely large against a background of sea and sky. Coming back from school, the ships were still there. They were actually docked at sea for about a week (maybe a little more or less), each carrying some surprise array of items in their hold.
The sight was something I hadn’t really seen, or maybe hadn’t simply noticed before. It was an interesting side-project to head on over to the boulevard to take photos of how it all looked like, especially since Rizal Boulevard was practically empty at the time that I went, since it was close to noon and the sun was at its highest and brightest.
As always, Rizal Boulevard is one of my favorite places to take panoramic photos within the city.
