Wooden Ships and Everyman

I said earlier below here somewhere, maybe in Cornwall, that I generally avoid trying to do postcard photos, because the postcards and tourist books are already for sale in the gift shops... But every now and then a scene comes along that just begs to be photographed, like this lighthouse and sailboat on the far southern tip of Guadeloupe, bathed in the rose light of a Caribbean sunset. Taken on Christmas Day, December 25th, 2004, one day later we would hear that the sea had risen up in fury in Asia and swept away more than 200000 souls... there are no guarantees in life... it is sometimes tempting to dream of sailing off in a wooden ship, on the water...
