Encountering Two Dazzled Ships WWI

WWI dazzle camouflage (c1918)
It is always interesting to hear from UK ship modeler Jim Baumann who sends us links to amazing World War I ship models, as well as vintage photographs of dazzle-painted ships from the same era. Recently he shared a link to a wonderful model by Hou Wenchang of the HMT Olympic (1918). Be sure to zoom in on the detailed close-up images on the left side of the page. And above is an unusual photograph of two exquisitely-camouflaged ships, either British or American.
