The Arrival of the Queen Mary 2

    Newer Older

    Cunard's Queen Mary 2, the world's largest ocean liner, arrived in San Francisco for the first time today, February 4, 2007, amid much local fanfare.

    Telstar Logistics is pleased to bring you exclusive team coverage of the event, thanks to three squads of ninja photographers who were on hand to capture the big boat's arrival. Complete details on the blog.

      Awesome shot. That Queen Mary is one big lady!

      We were debating whether or not to go watch the QM2 scrape under the GGB, but my wife said "dont' worry, that Telstar Logistics guy will be there taking pictures, for sure". Well, I had my doubts, but I have to say .. she was right!

      I watched it come into the bay, from Pier 39. It looked a lot bulkier from that perspective -- a big rectangle with a pointy snout.

      Damn nice shot. I was hoping you'd make it out there to shoot it!

      (I love this NYT shot of the QM2 -- it shows off how tall/immense the thing is.)

      I saw it from Crissy Field.

      At least I thought I saw it.

      You SAW it!

      Nice shot, Todd. Better than any of the photos I saw on SFGate.com!

      Man, I knew I should have gone out there. I was about the leave but decided not too. Ever since I moved from Daly City to Hayward I have become too lazy to get into the city. I feel like a fool for passing this one by, thanks for posting it.

      Great perspective! A lot different than Crissy Field. Amazed by the sheer number of people who came out today to see this grand lady arrive in San Francisco.
