“11, 10, 9”
“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.”
This photograph was taken in America’s oldest working shipyard in Gloucester, Massachusetts and reflects the timeless legacy of the New England sailing and boating community. Culturally, the legacy of sailing is baked into our regional DNA: Consider the whaling fleets captured in Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, and the images of a wind-blown JFK cruising aboard the Victura off Cape Cod. Sailors are passionate about their time on the water—buoyed by a sense of artful wonder. This photograph, “11,10,9” with its painting-like quality and powerful patina provides a visual journey into the sailor in all of us.
