The final in the collection that wre taken aboard the Queen Victoria by Nadia K. FOCUS FORCE wishes to express the good work by this young girl on the day who was incapacitated by an injured arm with it in a sling. So some, the slightly out of focus images. They have been included as a dedication of her endeavours and commitment to the task. We know that you will enjoy them!
Chairs line up on the deck awaiting the arrival of the sun-bathers. But, obviously the city of Melbourne beckoned many hundreds of them, as well as the other local Victorian attractions that they all travelled to, leaving the chairs vacant for most of the day while in port.
XXArriving at the gangplank this is the view that awaits the guests aboard the Cunard Queen Victoria. Each level represents the many decks that soar above the waterline providing home, haven, relaxation and entertainment to the many thousands travel aboard her.
A model of the Queen Victoria sits in one the lounge areas. From it, you can see some the locations from these images were taken.
A classic shot identifying the ship and location with the lifebuoy providing a “frame” to highlight an aspect of the ship and a guest wiling away the hours while in port. Shots like this add interest to the image to attract the viewers eye.
xxxThe view from aboard the majestic liner taken from the Commodores bar high up. This image shows what can be seen from the bridge as the camera catches a sunny day on Port Philip bay with the extremity of Williamstown dock creeping into the edge of the shot. What a day for some fun on the water.
Big toot … and little toot! The QV lies beside the dock with the smaller boat pouring fuel into the ships bowels like a thirsty giant. Capturing things that happen while the guests are out sight-seeing, and the crew go about their chores. Beware of movement; pushing the image out of focus.
Just for Lego fans, Nadia took this image of a replica of the beautiful cruise liner that any hobbyist would love to call their own. The flag standard floats gently in the breeze in a salute to the city of Melbourne in the background. Imagine the many views of exciting, and exotic cities around the world that would be seen from this spot. Oh, to dream!
