Before acts of terrorism changed public access rights forever I created a series on Shipping Container Vessels as seen from the water line, photographed from small rowing boats that I took myself to steward around the busy harbours of the world. I could never imagine being able to get close to these vessels ever again, their scale when you are up-close at the water line is quite simply jaw dropping.

The blue piece seen below housed over 4,000 brand new cars from Japan. I recall seeing coach loads of drivers being driven onto the vessel, followed by them all picking a car from inside the docked vessel and driving out in elegant formation, hypnotising to watch.
