Photographer's Note

Battleship Wisconsin : Berthed in Norfolk, the Homeport of Naval History.
Redefining the skyline of downtown Norfolk, battleship Wisconsin stands stoically with dominating presence. After months of dredging and construction, Wisconsin majestically slipped into the seemingly tailored berth without a hitch on 7 December 2000 - fifty seven years after the warship was originally launched. Berthing the 45,000 ton, 887,3 foot long, and 108 foot wide battleship was a major feat of engireering.
It's a very beautiful boat to see.
I really like the effect of the big boat and the little buildings behind.
