We clear the harbor and the wind catches her sails and my beautiful ship leans over ever so gracefully, and her elegant bow cuts cleanly into the increasing chop of the waves. I take a deep breath and my chest expands and my heart starts thumping so strongly I fear the others might see it beat through the cloth of my jacket. I face the wind and my lips peel back from my teeth in a grin of pure joy.”
― L.A. Meyer

The atypical backlit perspective of the sunrays shows the conventional white sail in beautiful color. I could feel the weight of the sails as they were hoisted to full sail with the folds of cloth giving the close-up viewpoint of the ship movement as the ship sailed on a beautiful summer day in New York Harbor.
