SS United States (night)

The SS United States remains in Philadelphia at this time. Rumor has it, the ship will be moved into a graving dock for an inspection. Some years ago, I was testing a camera at night and took this footage.

The ship had ghost-like feel that night. In any case, she retains the record for fastest transatlantic voyage. It will be interesting to see if she gets a new life. Stay tuned!

Cruis Ship Evening, Aruba

Still working with the iPhone and now the iPad movie making video apps. The other app became very frustrating for editing, so I returned to iMovie, which is much easier although it does lack some of the capabilities. What works… works. At any rate, here’s a look at Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas, docked in Oranjestaad, Aruba.

Of course, in low light the iPhone and iPad cameras are mediocre at best. Then again, cameras, like eyes, require light. The better the light, the better the image, regardless of the camera because the camera is merely recording what’s there to the best of its ability. The work continues.

Carnival Valor, arrives Aruba

From the gym yesterday, I noticed an approaching cruise ship. It turned out to be the Carnival Valor. Snapped this pic:

Aruba is “one happy island.” I’m sure the passengers arriving were a happy bunch as well. What’s your favorite cruise line and port of call? Bon dia.

Aruba Cruise Arrival Tips, video

Here’s a short video for folks arriving in Aruba via cruise ship (or those of you who want a quick overview of the island). You’ll see the gate where you exit the port area, a few tour buses, some shops, activities, and a few sights.

I hope you enjoyed that little informative piece. More videos from Aruba and elsewhere are on deck, so stay tuned, and don’t forget to “like” me on Facebook to stay current.
