photoblog image Boat Friday

Boat Friday

 

This ship was on a pedestal above a small fountain in Savannah.  I'm not sure what it commemorates, but it was near a US Coast Guard ship that was docked nearby which seemed to be offering tours and trying to lure in new recruits. 

 

The photo below has no relation at all to the top photo.  I just liked the festive look of the bows!  :-)

I can almost imagine a big glass bottle around it!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Wouldn't that be something!
Looks good in b/w, I think you are right, we didn't find any info' on it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank - you know I don't like to do a lot of "twiddling"... but felt I had to make it stand out a bit!

Amazing all the places we find boats. This one reminds me of all the tall ships.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is - I never used to notice them until someone started "Boat Friday"! I thought this looked rather elegant!
That alone, Elizabeth, would be worth going back to Savannah to find! smile (I like the festive bows, too!)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's rather elegant isn't it! Thank you, Ginnie!

I am so enjoying your pictures, Elizabeth. Great find that ship, looks great in B&W. Those ribbons show that with little you can get so much....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Astrid! I'm so glad!!
I thought that ship was so elegant... that's the word that keeps coming to mind!
Yes indeed, it doesn't take much at all!

A very original "Boat Friday", Elizabeth. We find them everywhere!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Lisl!
I never noticed them before "Boat Friday"!

Now I do believe that this could be the "SS Savannah" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Savannah ), the first steam-powered vessel to cross the Atlantic, 24 May-30 June 1819. It looks good in b&w. The red bows on the lamps in the other images just add to the elegance of the area; beautiful.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh my goodness, Alan! You must be right! How'd you figure this out????
Thank you for your kind comments!
et vogue le navire,friendship
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Thank you!
Something to do with the civil war perhaps E?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think Alan Rolfe has nailed it.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Savannah , the first steam-powered vessel to cross the Atlantic.

I wonder what this model ship is made of Elizabeth, it’s very silvery.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I just don't know, Chad... SHINY!

A small fountain you say? Will it be the one marked as "Bar"? There is a bow behind the ship model.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - smile The bar was across the street.... smile
And yes, again... There were bows everywhere!

What a fine craftwork of ship - and I like the festive look of the lampposts, too, a bit like in our city.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Elegant is the word that comes to my mind! The bows are so festive! Thank you, Philine!

The boat looks very intricate.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - and elegant, I think!
how do we leave comments for the 2nd or 3rd photos when you post them Elizabeth.

I am guessing this tree is in a courtyard or mini-park in a neighborhood in England somewhere.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You just have to put the comments all in the same section as for the primary photo.

The trees are in one of the 22 squares of Savannah.
nice boat shot
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you!
It's a cross between a paddle steamer and a sailing boat, how strange. The lampposts with bows look good.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Alan Rolfe found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Savannah ), the first steam-powered vessel to cross the Atlantic
I like the way the B&W brings out the details of the ship. Yes, I like those festive bows also.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ruthie! I was pleased with the results - I don't usually do this much "twiddling"! Thank you!
i love the boat Elizabeth... the decorations below are kind of cute....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do too, Peter! Thank you!
Looks rather odd, doesn't it? A paddle sailing ship?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Alan Rolfe found this... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Savannah ), the first steam-powered vessel to cross the Atlantic

intriguing about the boat image

wow, on those trees in the second image. they are magnificent.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I thought so too... Alan Rolfe found this on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Savannah ), the first steam-powered vessel to cross the Atlantic

I LOVE those giant Southern Live Oaks... do you have them in Arkansas?
ah yes one of the Savannah squares...that fits. I forgot that the trees there also some times suggest contorted shapes.

It has been 15 or more years since I was last in Savannah.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - Southern Like Oak, I believe.
Looks like what we call a Hybrid. Cool!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I think you're right!

A great standout with its masts and riggings against the foliage!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Well done, Steven! You're the only one to link the ship and the swan!
