    The port of Piraeus - Attica and the surrounding areas are just fantastic. I could spend hours and hours getting lost in street view. Thanks Paul, please send a search party, I'm lost again, haha.

    This port is amazing , these ferries are too, I got so totally lost in street view touring around but don't have any neat information for here yet. The horrible accident of the Costa Concordia at Giglio and its parbuckling exposed me to SkylineWebcams and for hours on end I watched the ferries there ( less than half the size of these ) , knew which ship was which and their time schedules. Even at their diminutive size compared to these ferries Giglio's still held more than I imagined, I'd think 'it can't hold anymore' and then the ship would swallow another vehicle.__ Thank You, Vanja for your comments on his name and my info on other channels.

    Sam, I never counted the number of the vehicles while leaving the ferry, for example, but it is amazing, every time when I thought that's it, more and more cars and trucks show up just like that :)

    Well, it is actually a very good idea, Sam :) Also, thank you for your research and interesting informations! You have his name correct as much as you can :), I am absolutely and deeply in love in Greece and Greek language, but it can be difficult for writing and reading when it's written in their letter...I believe it's crazy down there, with lots of traffic, people, noise and everything, but I wouldn't mind for one ride from Piraeus to Paxos, or Naxos :) Especially with the ferry!

    I contacted Sl about our host here, Κωνσταντινίδηç Máknç , ( I so hope I have the name correct ). The hosting structure for this channel does not at this time have a web site, expected soon though. I also suggested to Sl : maybe adding a ( ships/shipping/ferries/ports ) to their ' Live cams by categories ' at the top of the page. They seemed to like that idea, got a smiley face from them.

    Vanja, I agree with you about where the 'live cam' is mounted. I found that only with your clues and spelling translation of that name. So thank you ;-) When I click the 'Hosted By' nothing happens. Internet Explorer indicates that it is this cam's URL which is being pointed at. Maybe this is how Konstadinidis Makis wants it to be, and to remain anonymous. Searching for the name gave me only speculation, so I'll just let it rest. Maybe a note to SL, asking if the no active hosted by link is intentional. Thank you to our host 'Konstadinidis Makis' for sponsoring this 'live cam'.

    Hmmm...no, for me it says that it's hosted by Konstadinidis Makis. When I look on the Google Maps, there is a hotel Ikarios that could possibly be the building that hosts the camera at the rooftop (maybe that's the name of the owner?). I sound like a detective now :) And I wasn't so interested to find out before you mentioned it haha.

    Excellent Vanja, Capturing a special moment and then sharing in 'photos' is a great way to promote our hosts of these 'live cams'. Glad you already know about up'ing :-) cool beans ,, I like checking into the sponsors web page for each cam,, on this channel our host's link is this skyline cam.

    24nov17--Vanja, If you are using windows , you most likely have ' paint ' , Click your start button and spell paint into the ( search programs and files ) (( no need to hit enter or click anything, yet )) , paint should be listed at the very top as a program.. Click that and the program will open. I'll check back in here tomorrow , so let me know how it goes. _____ Thank you to the host for sponsoring this 'live cam'

    Nice photo Sam! Thank you on the info for the San Diego cam, I had no idea its there, good looking one. Also we can watch ships and airplanes on the Thermaic Gulf cam in Thessaloniki, since its near the airport. Yes, it was me that caught a thunderstorm on Maldives cam, I haven't uploaded it because it is just a screenshot from the Skyline app on my mobile phone :( I don't think they would approve it cause there is no Skyline sign on the picture. Anyway, I so have to get that desktop photo capture program y'all have :)
