Talk abut getting pulled in or roped in? Wonderful b&w I love all your boat photos, but this one grabbed me, I love the rope...

olli from Munich, Germany

Beautiful tones and exposure. Waht lens are you using for this shot?

16 Jun 2008 9:34pm

@olli: It's a Sigma 10-20 at it's fully wide end (Aminus3 converts the exif data to 35mm film equivalents so 10mm on my Nikon D40 = 15mm)

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Beautiful and peaceful. I like the little house in the background.

Russ Devan from New Hanover, United States

Beautiful old boat. I like how, in one fluid movement, the rope line draws my eye into the boat and the orientation of the boat draws my eye into the background and the bridge, and the bridge to the house. Damn, you're good.
