Queen Mary 2 being serviced in drydock

My history with the Queen Mary 2 of Cunard has been a unique chapter in my photographic journey. Despite my artistic focus on crafting illustrations and a scratch-built model of this legendary vessel, I had the opportunity to photograph her only once. This encounter took place in 2004 when the QM2 made a memorable visit to Rotterdam. It's somewhat surprising that our paths haven't crossed again since then.

QM2 being serviced in Damen drydock in Rotterdam was a unique photo opportunity.
I finished processing the shoot and the photo essay is now available to my awesome Patreons, I hope you enjoy the photos too.
