Saturday Snapshot

July 30, 2011

Carl and I spied this ship in a bottle in Trafalgar Square in London.  It’s huge and, for some reason, it fascinated me.

    I’d be fascinated with it to if I stumbled across that while wandering about somewhere. =)

    Thanks for sharing.

    What a cool picture. I can see why you found it fascinating.

    This is so cool.

    Either it has appeared since we were there several years ago, or we missed it. Lovely, isn’t it?

    How neat. No wonder it caught your eye.

    It would have fascinated me too. That is the most unique and creative piece of public art I’ve seen a long time! And I’m from the city that gave us Cows On Parade and now the giant Marilyn Monroe statue.

    Oh wow! That is just the coolest thing! I love ships in bottles, and would love to have seen this in person! Great photo, Kathy. Thanks for sharing it.

    Awesome! It must be some sort of temporary display. I wonder if it was advertising some exhibit that was going on somewhere in London.

    I think all ships in bottles are cool, but I’ve never in my life seen one this big!

  13. July 30, 2011 2:38 pm

    I remember seeing that when I was down in London a while back. Great shot 🙂

    That is quite amazing, I can see why it captured your attention.

  19. July 30, 2011 5:01 pm

    I can see why it fascinated you! It’s amazing! I would have loved to see it being made!

  20. July 30, 2011 7:04 pm

    I think that would have fascinated me too!

  21. July 30, 2011 7:29 pm

    That’s so cool! I wonder what it’s there for?

  22. July 30, 2011 9:46 pm

    Yes, I wonder what the story is behind this … I bet it drew a crowd!

  23. July 30, 2011 11:02 pm

    What a great picture! I have never seen a ship in a bottle this big!

    Incredible and wonderful. I luv a ship in a bottle. I have to tell you this story. When I was a small girl, my mother and I were shopping on a certain avenue in Philly. We passed a dusty shop. I tugged her hand. I had seen a ship in a bottle in the window. I wanted it for my dad. So we went in the dusty, jammed store and asked the price. The little man said 75. I said “mom, mom, get it. get it.” Nicely my mother told me we couldn’t afford it. It wasn’t $.75. It was $75.00. lol. I always remember that ship in a bottle and that store when….

    This is such a treat. I tweeted it and facebooked it. Grand.

    I can’t stop looking at it.

  26. July 31, 2011 8:56 am

    How fabulous.

  27. July 31, 2011 11:32 am

    Gosh, I could’ve spent hours looking at that!

  28. July 31, 2011 12:09 pm

    That is huge! Now I’m curious about the scale of the ship inside. 🙂

  29. July 31, 2011 12:14 pm

    that’s huge! I can’t believe they were able to do this. I amazes me when they do it inside the tiny bottles but this one. Hmmm maybe they assemble the glass around it after… what do you think?

  30. July 31, 2011 3:22 pm

    That would fascinate me too!

  31. July 31, 2011 5:30 pm

    I think that is a pretty cool bottle!!!

  32. July 31, 2011 5:46 pm

    That is so nifty! How on earth do they get those ships in there, anyway?

  33. July 31, 2011 7:12 pm

    I was just there and saw that!

  34. July 31, 2011 8:09 pm

    This is so cool and incredibly cool!! I could see why it would catch your eye!

  35. August 1, 2011 8:54 pm

    Good gracious, that is huge!!

    London is high up there on my wish list.

    Amazing picture! I’d love to know the backstory on this bottle.

  38. August 3, 2011 7:27 pm

    It’s completely fascinating! The sails look lovely and I can’t imagine how huge it really is. Very interesting.

  39. August 4, 2011 3:30 pm

    That is so cool! I would have been fascinated by it too!
