A job I wouldn’t do!
Summer, heat wave, loads of tourists in town and people just strolling around enjoying life on a Sunday off. That’s when I spotted this sailing boat at the Skeppsbron quay. However, the crew were far from idle – I guess they will take the opportunity when it comes to carry out repairs and maintenance work and a stay in port is ideal to get some work on the boat done.
Sailing boats are no longer for boys only. I saw at least two ladies in the crew.
I’m brave enough to admit that I would never climb all the way up and work somewhere half way between heaven and sea – at least that’s what it feels like to me.
Anyhow, there are also a couple of lessons to learn from these photos. When looking at them a couple of weeks later, I feel that I should also have taken a couple of steps back or zoomed out a bit to get a better understanding of the height they were working on and to capture an overall view of the boat.
Lesson No two: It’s not a bad idea to write the name of the boat down (or take a photo of its name). One can’t remember everything.
Nevertheless, I felt quite content afterwards. I like taking photos of people at work and I felt I got something extra this time.
