Converted from a slide taken in 1987 on Kodachrome 64 with an Olympus OM10 (which I still have somewhere), the camera that first kindled my interest in taking photographs. View of Portsmouth Harbour very early one Sunday morning from the quarterdeck of HMS Londonderry, tied up alongside at Priddy's Hard. Gunwharf Quays was still HMS Vernon, no Spinnaker Tower, No Lipstick (No1 Building, Gunwharf Quays), and no HMS Warrior. This was not a long exposure as the camera was hand held. The water in the harbour was as smooth as it is seen in the photo.

PS (Sept 2018): I now believe that the three masts on the left (right of Semaphore Tower) belong to HMS Warrior (1860), which was brought into Portsmouth in June 1987, and not HMS Victory as I first thought.
