Cruising for Photos

Aboard Symphony of the Seas

One of my many personal projects is to look for and photograph bits and pieces of the architecture on cruise ships.  For that purpose I hardly go anywhere without my little point & shoot camera.  It isn’t as intimidating as a regular camera and doesn’t look a lot different than a phone, which everyone is used to seeing.

There are things to see everywhere on board, just like on land.  Sometimes it is simply a shadow or a reflection, and occasionally it is just a piece of glass or metal that has an interesting shape.  Symphony of the Seas was no exception.

  1. Excellent captures Tom, especially that last one. And extra kudos for managing to exclude people in all these shots. I cannot imagine that was easy 🙂

    1. Thank you, Cedric. Early morning and port days where a lot of folks leave the ship are good times for keeping the people out. Also shooting at the ceiling sometimes!

  2. A great series of images, as usual. I must admit there is some very interesting architecture in these images that is truly art in itself. I hope to see more in the future.

    And, yes it has remembered me.

  3. I’ve definitely got more, Monte! I published a .pdf book of cruise ship photos a few years ago and need to figure out how to make it download-able from my blog.

    I’m glad we figured out the remembering thing! Interesting how poking around the settings can sometimes turn up something useful. Almost like reading the directions…. 😉
