For Day 3 of my B/W Photo Challenge, I present to you the Yacht man. I captured these moments one evening from the living room of our apartment.
He was up on the mast, repairing the halyard. When I was clicking him I wondered: what he’d eaten for lunch, if he’d fought with his family that morning, and weirdly, if he’d added coke or soda to his vodka.
I don’t think he’s checking his phone here. He may want to — the altitude might give him a good reception.
Here, he’s trying to pull a tool out of his repair kit; he’ll have to find it first.
Work has begun, and he’s peering in the direction of Brooklyn.
Is someone calling him from below, or is he gauging the altitude? “Will I survive if I fall, and if I survive, what’ll be left of me?”
He has a good view of downtown Manhattan, and with dusk approaching, the Hudson River traffic will peak.
The full view of the yacht and the man. Way ‘up’ to go.
A wider view.
The widest view the camera could get. Spot the yacht man?
The most zoomed-out click. He looks tired.
I figured by the end of it all that I had forgotten to eat lunch, fought with family in the morning and that, I would’ve added soda to my vodka.
I link Blewbird for this challenge. This blog has several breathtaking pictures.
