Name: Diane Cutter
Location: Ceiba, Puerto Rico USA
Print Title: 'After Weeks at Sea, the Children Sight Land'Comments: As children we traveled via freighter to and from Spain three different times. Days passed endlessly with occasional sightings of distant ships or flying fish. Sighting land was exciting. My parents would never have let us be so close to an open rail; this is a case of 'artistic license' where I continued the enclosed area with an open rail to give the sense of travel. The image is from a photo taken with my little Brownie Hawkeye camera, my first and most prized camera.
