The Electra

Newport Beach, California (Lido Marina)

"Welcome aboard the Electra.
Built in 1929, this 100-foot Classic Fantail vessel has been exquisitely restored to combine all the romance and opulence of the past with the comfort and convenience of today."

This is my Watery Wednesday post.

  21. It's sounds strange to me but in french boats are "masculine" and in english, "feminine"..so, SHE is marvelous, this old lady, with her round curves and her brilliant curves shining through the night. I'm with John "very Agatha Christie", and full of charm!

  24. What an elegant and luxurious boat... your photo is worthy of a prize! If you are showing this today, I can only imagine what treasure you have for us on Friday's reflection... It would be permissable to post this one.

  26. Excellent night shot James! I love the moody colors in the sky against all the festive and fiery lights in the middle and foreground. The mast forming a large cross jutting into that roiling sky makes this a very intense and unforgettable image indeed!

  27. Very cool photo James. The stillness of the water with those lighted reflections are just great.

  33. Hey James, I know you live pretty close to this boat. You mention the shot in your back. The surgeon who totally fixed my spine has an office on PCH at Hoag Hosp. He's awesome and I could give you his name and number if you want it.

  36. She sure is a nice boat. Well captured.

    I've been snooping thru your Images and found them all great. Wish I could do such a great job as you do. However, I'm working on it. I shoot a Pentax K100D with 4 different Lens's. I'm always trying to learn as I go along.

    Best Regards,
    Les
