Anyone know what this is? its been moored out on Long Wharf in New Haven CT for a few weeks now.. From the Highway, I thought it was just a Barge but upon closer inspection... it appears to be some sort of floating...thing.. like a science boat or floating classroom..lol its called the Point, Counter Point II

Early morning cloudy day 6:30-ish. Too large, couldnt get it all in frame!

another view..

Ahh Haaa.. http://www.artidea.org/index.cgi/13033

its a floating Ampitheater like, stage boat thing..lol

i guess they float it up and dock it and then it opens up and they play music, Its owned by The American Wind Symphony Orchestra and I guess its been on tour from state to state along the coast. Pretty cool but Im not as excited as I was as its Symphony music and not Rock... Oh well, I learned something new today!

Actually, it would be cool if it did have grunge bands... Not that im into grunge but Im into it alot more than Symphony..

Looks like something from a post-apocalyptic movie. Very cool. HDR worked well there.
