2007 Australian Wooden Boat Festival ~ Hobart ~ Tasmania

I'm anticipating there will be those who don't like the truncated arm at left. Just as I was about to take the shot, the fella in the foreground spotted me, rested his arm along the back of the seat and broke into a warm smile. To have asked him to move his arm back into the shot would've taken away the spontaneity of the moment, so here it is as captured - and besides, I'm rather partial to imperfection. :o)

These guys were sitting on a boat, surrounded by hundreds of other boats, looking at photographs of boats and talking about boats.
There's just something very special about boats ...

    Wonderful series of images!!
    I think this is just a perfect scene.. with the men in the boat recalling old travels.
    Very nice natural colours of the wood.
