Interesting Photo of the Day: Queen Mary 2 and Her Captain

Sydney-based photographer James Morgan had a big idea when thinking of ways to shoot the Queen Mary 2 (QM2) for her 10 year anniversary. I mean, a really BIG, GRAND idea!

Meet the world’s largest ocean liner and her captain:

In order to capture the ship’s impressive size–to really honor it–Morgan asked Captain Kevin Oprey to stand on the bulbous bow, which sticks out from the front of the 151,200 tonne liner. The photograph was shot while the ship was docked off the coast of Bali. From a small boat in front of the QM2, Morgan used a Nikon camera with a very wide angle lens to capture the grandness of the ship.
