Taken in Hamburg, Germany, in September (?) 1982.
I was actually going to Munich (Munchen), but managed to get tickets for England vs Denmark, in Copenhagen. A detour of approx 600 miles (1000 km)
It was a fun trip, and nice to see this lovely old Ship in the harbour.
It looks like a replica of an old galleon or pirate ship.
Hence the Jolly Roger flying from the mast.

Scanned Image.
Taken on 35mm film.
Olympus OM1N.
Seiko 50mm 1.8 (?) Lens.

Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking.
