This week it’s Pick a Topic from Cee’s Photo. I chose the ocean (no surprise there 🙂 ) This is a fishing trawler and if you look closely – it has a fan club following it.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Weathered Wood
This week on CFFC the topic is weathered, burned or burning wood. I am sharing a photo of some very weathered wood. In August of this year we visited DC and went to the Museum of American History. The pictures below are of Gunboat Philadelphia and it is the oldest surviving American fighting vessel. Built in 1776, it was sunk in Lake Champlain during a naval battle with the British in the same year. The Philadelphia rested on the bottom of the lake until it was discovered and recovered with much of its equipment intact in 1935 by Lorenzo F. Haggulund, a civil engineer who for many years exhibited it as a tourist attraction. It came to the Smithsonian museum in 1964, complete with the 24-pound ball that sent the gunboat to the bottom. It was amazingly preserved for all those years.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Anything Man Made
We live near naval harbor and lots of shipyards. I read that cruise ships have nowhere to “park” during a time like this, so some are using the ports in this area to berth until things open up. Like photos of TP, this photo depicts a sign of the current times.
