Yes, many of us are waiting for our ships to come in. Your photo has an empty quality.

A simple but impressive photo. You caught the feeling of emptiness.

Even ports need a rest, I guess.
It makes a special picture.

I see it as a welcome moment of quiet in an otherwise busy port. Great photograph!

How did you do it?
