Razzle Dazzle

Posted by

Dazzle ships were painted during the during the first world war and into the second in order to visually break up their shape and camouflage it, making the boats more difficult to identify and hit

A clever idea to camouflage the ships. I wonder how well it worked.

Now that is a stunning paint job! It is hard to imagine this would camouflage it!

I would love to see it floating out in the water! The colors are fabulous and I am sure it took a lot of time to paint the ship. A great composition, especially with the building in the background!

I wonder if that really worked ad camouflage. Maybe hunters should try it. ;-)
