Ever wondered how large the piston in a steam ship was? Here you can see with your own eyes that they are rather larger then the ones in your car or lawn mower!
This is an exhibit in the MAN Museum in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany. Close to where BMW and Porches are made.

Hello Murray,
This is a very clean and attractive composition!
The subjects are very well displayed in this image, and with fine colours & sharpness to show details well!
Pablo -

I can only echo Pablo's words Murray. Good clean lines, lovely light. Many years ago I was invited to an engine room of a tug in Fremantle, WA. I was in awe at the size of the pistons then. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on
Cliff Grounds III

good perspective to have the man standing there... what a wonderful place to do a model shoot. Well done!

En effet, ce piston est géant....
Il sert dans quel genre d'engin...?
