On 12/7/14, coming back from the Shipyard at 530am, in 20 degree weather and in the dark, one of our Irish shipmates passed the crew member with her tripod and camera and said 'Good Gracious, Mae, aren't you an odd one out here with that camera in the dark' (make sure you say it with an Irish brogue). The ship is normally a great place to take pictures with so much of interest to see, but by adding a colorful sunrise, you've just exponentially made the shot cooler.
Taking sunrise shots of the ship, one can't help but think of all the 'lost' sunrises that merchant marines and armed guardsmen saw in the war, those skies that students saw from 1946-1982 when they boarded the ship on Monday through Friday for high school in NYC, and the ones that all members have witnessed since the BROWN became Project Liberty Ship. Unable to go back and share those sunrises, we are taking the opportunity to share some more recent ones taken by a volunteer, who happens to have an addiction to sunrises of any sort. But sunrise shots of the BROWN are 100% more special. Just about everything about the BROWN is special...
Come forth, all ye 'night owls' and see what the morning folk see each morning as they drink a wonderful, steaming cup o' joe and enjoy the first visual gift of the day.
