Lyrics courtesy of Tracy Chapman. This is a scanned Polaroid type 55 negative scanned with a layer of my handwriting. Shot on a TOYO 4x5 view camera fitted with a schneider lens.

I used to live on a boat as a kid, sailing around the world and spent many years hating the sea and anything to do with sailing. These days, now that lifestyle has long gone I can't help but romanticise a little...I can now see why my parents did it. It changed my life- probably, in retrospect for the better... and now I am just an island.
