If I ever did that project, I think I would want to do something like this. I would want to make sure that I catch the ship in recognizable places.
In this case, having the Bluewater Bridge as a backdrop. Granted, this wouldn't be the beginning of the trip, but it would work for establishing a place. If I weren't chasing other ships, I probably could have caught her along the St. Clair River.
As it was, I ended up catching her at the Ambassador Bridge.
