I was attending the Ops Sail event in Norfolk, Virginia on June 8, 2012, which features a major celebration of tall ships from around the world. I was invited to board the Indonesian tall ship, as I was being escorted on-board - I was intrigued by the detail on the wooden cabin door, and thought it made for a beautiful study (texture, grain of the wood, color, etc.) as I snapped the shot, for just a milisecond - I happened to capture the silouette of an Indonesian sailor through the porthole window. I took thousands of shots of the various ships that day... but this shot captured the event!
