A still-life that I cobbled together on the theme of sailing. I know nothing about sailing but a friend is an enthusiast and he loaned me the bits and pieces. The shadow effect was created with a gobo - a metal stencil that fits over the light. A wide-angle lens is unusual for still-life but I thought the perspective effect, with the books looming large in the foreground, worked well.
I got the title from a similarly-themed John Wayne film. The print was toned in Agfa Viradon which, literally, stinks.
