The shadow of a lorry arriving at the parking area for the Woolwich Ferry is cast on a sign advertising the improvement work taking place at the ferry terminal buildings in London, January 23, 2015. Now, as in the past, there are proposals for plans to replace the Woolwich Free Ferry with either a bridge or a tunnel. However, many of the ferry workers believe there will always be a ferry service at Woolwich, which has been a place for crossing the Thames since the Saxon times. The free ferry opened in 1889, with each boat licensed to carry 1000 passengers and 15-20 vehicles. Latest figures show that on average just under 80,000 vehicles and 22,000 foot passengers use the ferry every four weeks.

Buildings, including some under construction, are seen beyond the marina at Zaitunay Bay in Beirut August 19, 2014. Some travellers want to see history, others want to live it. In Lebanon, a slice of land between the Mediterranean and war-ravaged Syria, you can do a lot of both. In Beirut, the civil-war-era gunmen who used to patrol the seaside corniche are long gone, replaced by hairy-chested men playing bat and ball or women in full makeup jogging down the strip, some dragging their chihuahuas. Saint-George Yacht Club & Marina, on one side of the corniche and in the heart of Beirut, opened in the 1930s. Little remains of the main building after a bomb in 2005 ripped out its interior and killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. But the Lebanese are resilient and the club has stayed open.

The Italian chapel is seen on the Orkney Islands, Scotland
The Italian chapel is seen on the Orkney Islands, Scotland May 8, 2014. During WWII, Italian prisoners of war were used to build what is know as the Churchill barriers, four stone causeways that link some the islands. An Italian prisoner Domenico Chiocchetti, built what is known as the Italian chapel from one of the huts at the prisoner of war camp. During both World Wars, Scapa Flow was an important British naval base, and the site of significant loss of life. Following the end of World War One, 74 German warships were interned there, and on June 21, 1919 most were deliberately sunk, or scuttled, at the orders of German Rear Admiral Ludwig Von Reuter, who mistakenly thought that the Armistice had broken down and wanted to prevent the British from using the ships. Now Scapa Flow is a popular site for divers, who explore the few wrecks that still remain at the bottom. The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Private yachts are moored in the waters of ONE15 Marina Club on Sentosa island in Singapore
Private yachts are moored in the waters of ONE15 Marina Club on Sentosa island in Singapore April 22, 2014. Marina developers in Southeast Asia are racing to build berths to address the latest problem vexing Asia's rapidly growing ranks of ultra-rich: insufficient parking lots for their superyachts. Yacht sales in Asia currently account for 9 percent of the global market share, according to consultancy Wealth-X. While the number falls behind North America's 44 percent and Europe's 34 percent, industry experts expect sales to pick up rapidly within the next few years as the number of multi-millionaires in the region increases.
