The unofficial (but still awesome) Tumblr for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. If you love our oceans, join the digital Tumblr crew and help spread the message of direct-action activism and protection of our marine wildlife!
These are little snaps I didn’t add to the other photosets because they didn’t quite fit. Among them:
The view from the boatdeck of Bob Barker looking up at her bridge. I’m not sure what the number is but it framed the whole image quite nicely.
Then, same place just 180* around looking out over the foredeck and the Sea Shepherd flag flying.
Some of the battle scars from her previous encounters.
A shot along her starboard side bow from the Quay dock because I’m a mad skilled photographer like that. And because, I’ll happily confess, it looks awesome.
Some pink paintballs shot at her by the crew of the Brigitte Bardot as they were docking, for funsies I do believe.
A surprise when I was waiting to board the Brigitte Bardot, a gorgeous female Eclectus called Ruby. She sat on my shoulder for a few minutes, gave me a few kisses and let me scritch her neckfluff. She was very polite for an Eccie, I’m used to them being fairly boisterous birds.
The load line/Plimsoll line markings running her bow, and a nice shot of her nose art: a nice snarly, toothy grin.
The water in the Quay was gorgeous, though dirty as any highly used port is, and refracted the rich sunlight beautifully so I snapped a shot.
