Welcome to The Pier, your access to photographs of cruise ships and ocean liners, yachts, pleasure crafts, fast crafts and ferries. The Pier also includes photographs of freighters or cargo ships but most of these are shared to me by friends onboard cargo ships. I have overwhelming interest for ships that started during my early years as a kid - an interest that captivated me professionally and has evolved to be one of my much valued hobbies in addition to photography. Ship particulars and in-depth reviews of ships are obtained from other sources but posted with permission. As of this time my collections are still very limited but I am updating the entries here from time to time most especially when I get into the chance of encountering other ships in every ports of call.
