The Festival of Tall Ships was here and, as I mentioned earlier, I was most interested in capturing the scene prior to mobs of people showing up. On Saturday morning, I arrived early, but after sunrise,  and the brightly lit ships didn’t work for me. The next day, I was in place before the sun got there and was far more pleased with my captures.

The Giant Rubber Ducky was a part of the festival.

Sunrise over the Fox.  When’s the last time you saw a photograph that included a sunrise, paper mill, Spanish galleon, and giant rubber ducky?

Eat your heart out, National Geographic.


More duckishness:

And finally, just a little Tiananmen Square vibe here:

    Aren’t you glad you dragged yourself out there at 0’dark thirty?

    Rubber Ducky
    You’re the one
    You make bath time
    Lots of fun!
    Rubber Ducky
    I’m awfully fond of you!

    Rubber Ducky
    Joy of joys
    When I squeeze you, you make noise
    Rubber Ducky
    You’re my very best friend
    It’s true.

    Great series. That duck does get around. He was in Sydney a few years ago.

    • I am totally losing my edge that I did not even THINK of that song…and now it is firmly lodged in my head. Several years ago, I had a class that would burst into song given half a chance. (Don’t ask–they were 14 and exuberant.) “Rubber Ducky” was a real fan fave…they LOVED to sing that one.

  4. Early morning – always the best time….
    Great series.
