While on a trip to the Dry Tortugas, we were fortunate to anchor near Bluenose II, a Canadian schooner built in 1921 and rebuilt in 1963. Designed for fishing and racing, the ship has quite a history, earning a place of honor on postage stamps and the Canadian dime. I couldn’t wait to see her with her sails full. As luck would have it, I was there when she began pulling out of her anchorage. I powered my sailboat and got in a perfect position as she carefully and slowly navigated the waters. Once her sails were raised, I took the photo. However, I wasn’t sure what to do with it at the time. Years later, during a visit to the Salvador Dalí’s Museum in St. Petersburg, I was inspired to think beyond conventional photography and started to experiment with double-exposures. I created this composite using space photos and this image of Bluenose II. This photograph is printed on a large format Epson printer using genuine Epson ink and archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. Each photograph is digitally signed, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. This is a limited edition series and each photograph is numbered.
