I don't think this works particularly well as a fake tilt-shift but getting the subject matter is more and more challenging!

The HMS Bounty was docked in Cork this weekend.

The tall ship was built in 1960 for the film Mutiny on the Bounty starring Marlon Brando.The tall ship set sail from San Juan at the beginning of April and it took the ship 37 days to cross the Atlantic to begin their European tour. This ship also featured in Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man's Chest, Treasure Island, Spongebob Squarepants and Yellowbeard. The decks get scrubbed with salt water for up to half an hour every day to preserve the wood.

HMS Illustrious at the CLT this evening

I visited the HM Treasury building during the Open House London. The most interesting part was the circular courtyard. I was lucky enough to be able to take a long exposure and have the sun shining at the end I was taking a photo of.

Victoria Embankment - DSC_5999_6000_6001_tonemapped


HMS Saxifrage was launched in 1918 as a Flower-class anti-submarine Q-ship. She was renamed HMS President in 1922 and moored permanently on the Thames as a Royal Navy Reserve drill ship. In 1982 she was sold to private owners, and having changed hands twice, now serves as a venue for conferences and functions, and serves as the offices for a number of media companies. Technically, she is now called HMS President (1918) to distinguish her from HMS President, the Royal Naval Reserve base in St Katherine Docks. She is one of the last three surviving Royal Navy warships of the First World War


President is permanently berthed in the River Thames on the Victoria Embankment in the City of London close to Blackfriars Millennium Pier and is listed on the National Register of Historic Vessels as part of the National Historic Fleet. The present owners plan to present her as an historical resource during the 2014-18 First World War centenary, as the U-Boat campaign of World War I was the greatest peril that Britain faced in 1917-18, and was the most critical naval conflict of that war.


Students of naval history can visit by appointment. The nearest London Underground stations are Temple and Blackfriars on the District and Circle lines. Blackfriars is a National Rail station.

Note the six visible drive ports (two are underneath) - these permit the HMS Amor de Cosmos to achieve breathtaking speeds (interstellar and within solar systems) with optimal directional control.

The HMS Bounty, built in 1960 for the movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" with Marlon Brando. This ship took center stage in the famous story of Captain Bligh and his mutinous crew. The spirit of Lieutenant Fletcher Christian awaits!


HMS Warrior was the name ship of her class of two armoured frigates built for the Royal Navy in 1859–61. She and her sister ship HMS Black Prince were the first armour-plated, iron-hulled warships, and were built in response to France's launching in 1859 of the first ocean-going ironclad warship, the wooden-hulled Gloire. Warrior conducted a publicity tour of Great Britain in 1863 and spent her active career with the Channel Squadron. She became obsolescent following the 1871 launching of the mastless and more capable HMS Devastation, was placed in reserve in 1875, and was paid off in 1883.

HMS Illustrious was a light aircraft carrier of the Royal Navy and the second of three Invincible-class ships constructed in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In 1982, the conflict in the Falklands necessitated that Illustrious be completed and rushed south to join her sister ship HMS Invincible and the veteran carrier HMS Hermes. To this end, she was brought forward by three months for completion at Swan Hunter Shipyard, then commissioned on 20 June 1982 at sea en-route to Portsmouth Dockyard to take on board extra stores and crew. She arrived in the Falklands to relieve Invincible on 28 August 1982 in a steam past. Returning to the United Kingdom, she was not formally commissioned into the fleet until 20 March 1983. After the Falklands War, she was deployed on Operation Southern Watch in Iraq, then Operation Deny Flight in Bosnia during the 1990s and Operation Palliser in Sierra Leone in 2000. An extensive re-fit during 2002 prevented her from involvement in the 2003 Iraq War, but she was repaired in time to assist British citizens trapped by the 2006 Lebanon War.


Following the retirement of her fixed-wing British Aerospace Harrier II aircraft in 2010, Illustrious operated as one of two Royal Navy helicopter carriers. After 32 years' service, the oldest ship in the Royal Navy's active fleet was formally decommissioned on 28 August 2014 even though she would not be replaced until HMS Queen Elizabeth's commissioning in 2017. Despite the UK Ministry of Defence's announcement in 2012 that, once decommissioned, Illustrious would be preserved for the nation, in 2016 she was sold and towed to Turkey for scrapping.
