Once upon a time but not far away
Contest Number: 95 Contest Theme: Black and White Lens: Vivitar 24mm Camera: Pentax K-30 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F9.5 
Posted By: Pewter, 07-25-2014, 09:06 AM

There was a time I believe when this old fishing boat with graceful classic lines sailed proudly the South China Sea. But beached long ago on the gritty shores of Johor Straits, Malaysia -- only a few wandering photographers and stray cats ever give her a second look these days

I second crewl1's nomination. It's a beautiful boat and all that structure just lends itself to B&W. Nicely done.
