Titanic Building Plaza, Belfast

The lamp posts represent the stanchions of Arrol Gantry, one of the world’s largest cranes. Embedded into the slipways are two life-size outlines of Titanic and Olympic’s main deck illuminated by the blue light, echoing the scale of the Great Gantry and the Olympic-class sisters.

Before the tumblr illuminati come and drag me away for posting too much boring stuff, have a photo from a couple of weeks back, my usual spot in the top end of the Torrens has been flooding on account of the slipway at Kangaroo Creek Reservoir being open. The water is rather brackish and horrible and the amount of garbage being dumped in the river is sickening, but it’s not a sight you often get to see. I did a bit of panorama shooting but ultimately it wasn’t very successful.
