A Shipyard Lullaby in six images.

Continuing to roll out captures from Bay Shipbuilding taken last Thursday night.

With this collection, I deliberately chose to under-saturate colors, looking for a muted palette. What it feels like–to me, at least–is a collection of illustrations in search of a children’s book.

The largest freighter featured in this collection is the CSL Assiniboine.  CSL Assiniboine was built in 1977, is 740 feet long and flies the Canadian flag. Next to her (showing red lights) is the Hon James L Oberstarr and farthest to the left can be seen another Canadian vessel,  the CSL Laurentien.
