MM 2-20: A Sailing Ship’s Rigging in Monochrome

In the Fall of 2013 we traveled to London and spent a day visiting the UNESCO Heritage Site called Maritime Greenwich which includes the Royal Observatory, the Royal Navy College, the National Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark, one of the last of the great clipper ships of the 19th century. Here is a closeup of the masts and rigging of that venerable sailing ship and my entry for week 2-20 of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge:

No, that’s not a real person working on the sails in the lower left of the photo. Just some kind of mannequin. I cropped the original photo and converted it to black and white using Adobe Lightroom.

See here for my original posting and more pictures of the Cutty Sark and the answer to the age-old question: “Which came first, the whisky or the sailing ship?”

And if you have some time today, please drop by Leanne’s website to see what other photographers are doing in monochrome these days.
