Trisha’s Link of the Day: When urban exploration hits the water

I’ve got more than a few friends who are photography geeks and one of the things they share in common on their Flickr sets are some pictures dedicated to urban exploration, that wonderful past-time where hiking, history, research, the unknown, possible paranormal activity, and the threat of being arrested due to tresspassing combine to showcase places and sights that almost no one gets to see on a daily basis.

However, I don’t think any of my friends have ever been out to see this New York Harbor ship’s graveyard.

Brought to us by the folks at Tugster, their photographers were able to get close to these rusty and broken old ships and boats by kayak; I wonder what someone with a dive master’s certificate and a camera could do?

    That's pretty awesome, almost surreal.

    Though, I wonder why the hulks weren't broken up for scrap back in the day?

    There are actually sightseeing tours of some of the Lake Erie wrecks run by diving schools. I'd really like to try that out some day when I can afford a high-quality underwater enclosure for my camera.
