Carnival Fantasy Cruise Ship and Dolphin, Charleston Harbor, SC

How often has nature been a model for human endeavor? When prehistoric peoples first watched dolphins plying the freedom of ancient seas, it no doubt inspired them to one day do the same. We have progressed far since that time.

  5. I am concerned that these huge ships, bigger and bigger, invade rivers such as those that can be seen in recent years in Venice. I hope that here the river can absorb the enormity. But I like your beautiful composition with the delphin perfectly captured.

  13. Wow what a capture - the similarities in the evolutionary design of the dolphin and that of the cruise ship come across superbly.
