Tall Ships is here!
We took a few hours out of our busy photo processing schedule yesterday to venture down to Ruston Way and take in the Parade of Sail, which kicks off the Tall Ships 2008 festival. Tall Ships will be in downtown Tacoma from July 3-7, and it's well worth checking out — not that we'll have much time to do so personally!
We arrived early (too early) and watched the ships line up for the parade at a distance. Scott brought his longest lens to snap the first shot of the Lady Washington while it was still miles away near Vashon Island. Then he turned around and caught the second shot of a cute kid watching excitedly from his room at the Silver Cloud. The third shot is of the replica Bounty (of "mutiny" fame) as it sailed along the waterfront.
