Queen Mary II

On Sunday March 14th, 2010 I headed to Fremantle to shoot the Queen Mary II departure and festivities. It was hard to take your eyes off the immense Queen Mary II as she berthed in Fremantle Harbour, she arrived early Sunday morning and departed late in the afternoon bound for Mauritius. Thousands of locals flocked to secure vantage points and witness the largest ship ever to visit Western Australia depart Fremantle.

After some quick talking and social engineering, followed by Assassin’s Creeding through the crowd, I was given access to the Fremantle Port Authority building to shoot the departure and took some great photos on the roof. My only regret was that I didn’t format the CF card before shooting, leaving me with limited space, I missed a few good shots while deleting photos to make room. Lesson learnt.

Queen Mary 2 Fremantle Departure

She was indeed majestic, even a tad gorgeous, as she sailed into the sunset cheers of “aussie, aussie, aussie” from passengers abroad were followed by “oi, oi, oi” from the flag waving crowd on the docks who gathered to watch her depart.
