“Proportions “

One of the strange aspects of looking out at the harbor is the contrast between the cruise ship and the other boats. The fishing boats seem to the eye to be in proportion to the landscape while the Rotterdam skews my sense of things.

I am frequently teased about my love for proportion, and I accept the ribbing. New England houses seem in right relation to their place in the landscape. Old ones at least. Of course I am bothered by new McMansions.

While I know cruise ship passengers help the local economy, their scale seems off. Which is ironic, since when I was on one it seemed just fine!
