SS Rotterdam

By joop_  
The Rotterdam from 1959 is the fifth ship with that name, in service of the Holland-America Line (HAL). It is a steamship with oil fired boilers and steam turbines.
It is one of the most famous post-war Dutch passenger ships. It experienced the last decade of transatlantic liner shipping between 1959 and the end of 2000 and was a successful cruise ship thereafter. Since August 4, 2008 the ship has been a floating attraction (guided tours, hotel-café-restaurant) at the Derde Katendrechtse Hoofd in the Maashaven in Rotterdam.

Mono brings it a feeling of nostalgia.

That's one big boat, Joop! A fine capture, I do like colour, but the eye is drawn to the building on the left - in mono it's less distracting and the eye concentrates on the boat itself 😃👍
