This image is for Week 4 in my online class Beyond Beyond with Kim Klassen. The challenge was to take something from indoors and photograph it outdoors.
This proved to be not too challenging for me since outdoors is not too far from indoors on a sailboat — just a few steps up from the cabin — and we live out there a lot of the time.
Nonetheless, I brought my grandfather’s binoculars (which I brought for good luck) outside, along with an old map of the Bahamas and a set of dividers, and placed them on the cockpit table.
I used a couple of layers of Kim’s “Violet” texture from her new beautiful Downton Abbey set. (Coincidentally, we started watching Season 2 last night as we settled in cosily and listened to the rain start to pelt down on the boat.)
