The story behind the image
This photo is from one of our trips with my father-in-law who owned a yacht called Carina for about a decade. In my opinion, he did it all right: He had retired early, purchased the yacht and travelled the Baltic Sea – each year from about mid-May to mid-September. After ten years, at the age of 70, he decided to quit sailing. By then, he knew the Baltic Sea inside-out, so the thrill was gone (in a way), and he realized that it’s also a lot of hard work to maintain a sailing yacht.
I like this photo because of its clear geometry and reduced color set. And, of course, because of the memories associated with it.
