I live by the Queen Mary. I see her almost every day and have sort of fallen in love with her. The first R-rated movie I was allowed to see was the Titanic, in my grandparents basement, in Kansas. At that point I fell in love with not only the story, but everything about the ship. I watched all the James Cameron documentaries. I went to the traveling shows and touched the fake icebergs until my hands were numb. I bought a lump of coal that was recovered from the wreck site of the Titanic. It's a tragic but mesmerizing story. So to live next to a ship that was built in the same era with the same style is incredible. I knew I had to take some of my pictures on her. She came to Long Beach in 1967 and is docked permanently. Also she is a one of the most haunted places on earth! I haven't seen any ghost yet, but I have definitely felt them. Down by the infirmary it feels quite ghosty. No cheers here, I hope eventually all those ghosts can figure out where they belong.
