Photos of QE2 leaving/returning Southampton
« on: Mar 14, 2009, 01:24 AM »
I promise I'm not on commission and hope it's ok to mention it but I got some great photos of our cruise departure/return from a helpful guy called Dean at Fawleygallery. He charges obviously per print but it's nice to have the possibility of a decent photo of your actual cruise from across the water.

Great find!   :) I just looked at my September 2008 departure.  If the resolution is decent, I suspect I will be able to spot myself on the observation deck.  Looks like I have to order a few prints.

Thank you, Kev!

I can see lots of people with me on 31.7.'09 - on the Observation deck!

Glad to help. The quality of the prints I ordered is excellent. I have spoken to Dean. He just loves recording Cruise ships coming and going and I believe the gallery is his living. I think it's great that someone took those shots-he even managed to get me waving above the cunard sign (check 2 hands in air!)The choppy delayed departure of 12/08/08 and tranquil early morning turnaround of 22/8/08 are beautifully captured

Think you may be owed some percentage commission KEV!

I think I've just spotted myself in one of the 31st July ones; 2 figures away frm main crowds close to one of the red lifeboats.
Think it may be me and my mum hanging out and admiring the view - me in a state of excitment nd squeeing with pleasure at being back onboard.
Took a few pics ourselves - one of which is where my avatar picture comes from - its the turquiose top that stands out!
(Embarassingly, the cardigan had been put to good use a few minutes earlier. Being a clumsy sort, I'd managed to spill a full glass of champagne down my top in an excited champagne glass in hand / camera / trying to get pics of the flags on the mast situation and ended up with a QE2 version of a wet  t-shirt competition and the cardigan was wrapped around tightly to spare my further blushes in the sailaway crowd! oops! :-[  ::)   ;D)

Nice to see another pic of almost the event that makes me giggle at the memory!

So, Ali wouldn't some Royalties for our appearance cheer us up?!!! 
and proceeds ...well... towards our Save the QE2 Fund, providing it ain't too late!
