Waverley Paddle Steamer from Dunure

Is it just me or do the photos that seem to tell a story always look better in black and white? As here, where we see a couple enjoying a sunny day at Dunure Harbour on the west coast of Scotland. The man with his binoculars out is looking at the PS Waverley, the world’s last remaining sea going paddle steamer and his wife? Seems to be more interested in her book or magazine so that she hasn’t even glanced up at the historic sight passing her by. Well maybe not, but that is the impression I got when I looked across the harbour to see this composition with the paddle steamer and the interesting couple.

This photo was taken over a year ago and I was sure it had already appeared on the website. Last week I was going though my 15,557 photos taken in 2007 for a recent lecture I did at Sale Photographic Society here in Manchester.
