ghost yard

I am sure there are a few sailors out there who might appreciate this shot. I love old boat yards and old sailboats. This shot has a very erie feel, as the flipped lens of my brownie hawkeye plays with the image at the edges. The photograph was exposed on City Island, NY at a now defunct yard. Many of the winning Americas Cup Yachts were built up on City Island, which is interesting as one typically does not think of the Bronx as a sailing hot-bed. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case and much of the sailing industry is no longer part of the Island.
