Queen Mary - Memorial Day 2012

Nikon D300, 35mm f/9, 1/320th, ISO 100
The Queen Mary now permanently docked at the port of Long Beach in Los Angeles County carried thousands of U.S. troops between New York and Britain during World War II.  She now serves as a museum, hotel, and is home to many restaurants. Too many she evokes memories of the Titanic.  In fact, the Queen Mary was larger than the Titanic, however, the doomed ship had an extra non operating smoke stack which makes it appear longer.
