Philadelphia Navy Yard #4

By handlerstudio  
O:once again, shooting with my iPhone, which seems like such an underwhelming tool for such a large subject. This aircraft carrier is just off the the right at the end of Broad St., which runs from the north end of the city to this end, in the south, with its only curve being around and past City Hall, which sits right in the middle of Broad St. One strange thing, and as far as I know, unique to Philadelphia, is that in South Philly, yo see cars parked in the middle of Broad St., And it seems, based on results, to be totally legal.

So this aircraft carrier is berthed right there on the Delaware River. Know idea when it last saw service....adn my guess, that as immense as this may be small by current standard.

My thanks to Isabel for her award a couple of days ago.

And an apology....Citizens' Climate Lobby has had me tied up in meetings, with little time to do as much time as I would like to review lots of photos....

The lead is some awesome frame filler Peter ! And this set of a retired aircraft carrier is not something one see's every day. Very fascinating to see ...good point you bring up on how much bigger the new ones must be ...maybe 10 -20 percent bigger ?
