Danube Delta, 11 September

We came up along a fleet of boats—Navy? Coast Guard? There were two bright objects in the whole lot that stood out. One was the colorful Romanian Flag and the other was a sign saying "Hey! Don't take my picture!" Since the camera in the sign looked like the old-fashioned filmy type, I thought I might get away with my beautiful new digital Nikon. But, I began to get nervous as I imagined a small speedboat carrying navy officers dressed in white coming our way. Perhaps they'd demand my camera and, searching for film that wasn't there, throw it in the river. I might be carried off in chains. What are they afraid of? I might see some secret weapon? Some new type of radar that they're hiding out in the open? Some sailors goofing off?
