The Ultra-Wide Series
Yet another in the ultra-wide angle series. I do want to buy the olympus 7-14mm lens one day. Too bad it's so damned expensive. Again this image was shot with VV's rental lens on his camera when we went out to the Toronto Port Lands a few weeks ago. This is the third consecutive image in the series.
This is the Algobay, a great-lakes cargo liner that is mostly out of the water and sitting in the Toronto Portlands. The owner of the now no-longer sailing ship allowed us to come onto his property to snap a few shots.
There is a shot I posted a few days back showing the entire ship in its setting. It can be found 'here'
A satellite image of the ship can be found here.
[followup] - Maybe it still is used. Oddly the boat was registered in 1993 and is owned by a company called Algoma Central Corporation which has offices in Toronto. I don't know. It most definitley does not look that sea-worthy to me! Especially with it's anchor ditched ashore. Registration Info .
[followup 2] Ah... A back history can be found here. It was built in 1978 but its internal bulkheads collapsed from salt-water corrosion.
