So it was the day I've been waiting a year for...Engineer's Day. And I couldn't have asked for a more perfect ship to see first.
Before I headed down to the Locks, I saw that the Ojibway was passing by Sherman Park. I couldn't pass an opportunity to take a picture of her there because ships look so nice passing by in the morning.
The Ojibway is the ship that was built in Bay City and she's a beauty.
She cuts a pretty nice profile to boot.
So I headed over to the Locks. I arrived in time to catch her as she was entering the Locks.
One of the coolest things about Engineer's Day is that you can get a view like this. If you look to the right, you can see how popular this event is.
The giant ship slowly works her way into the MacArthur Lock.
I love the headshots of these ships.
She slowly approaches.
The water was smoothe enough to get a nice reflection.
A shot of her pilothouse.
Another full headshot.
And a shot of her reflection in the water.
After she stopped, I headed out because I wanted a shot of her on the water.
