Whenever I hear a sea story I think of the first time I saw the QE2 and the great adventures that followed.

Thank you, Janice, for all your work in preparing this contest! And to Lynda too (now absent on another ship  ;) ).

I am really looking forward to admiring all these themed pictures which will be collected and selected in the course of the coming months -- and am also looking forward to ordering the calendar with the twelve prize winning photos!

This will be a great occasion for going through our albums and finding the very best ones.

Have fun!

Good job to those all involved in setting this up.Is it correct that 3 photos per Month can be added by one member? If yes then i have just added my second entry.

QE2 in port does that apply too when the ship was at anchor?

Yes, three photos per month and per member are very welcome!

I propose we keep QE2 at anchor for another time, as this will give wonderful opportunities to upload photos related to tendering.

So, this month it is only QE2 berthed in port.

No Peter -- the Photos of the Month are a separate thread. You could even enter the same pictures again for a later competition if they respond to another theme as well!

Sorry, Janice -- I think I have time zone advantage at present  ;) .

This is a great idea for the Forum,
and at the same time - it's already looking really difficult to choose...Hmm!

QE2 has been waiting alongside in Dubai for very nearly  whole years... she seriously needs to be earning her keep....

Perhaps having 3 is too much, then again it was tough to get down to only 3..
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

If our (almost) 700 members post 3 photos each, it will definitely be too much at voting time! Let us see what sort of numbers we get.
