"Sailboat in Storage"

An afternoon in Martinez offered up a wildlife preserve, trains, marina, funky town, oil refinery and tanker trains, people feeding ducks and flying kites, and much much more. A mother-lode of material for my new telephoto lens.

@ordinaryimages: Hey, how does a guy from Kentucky Bluegrass know about the Delta? I will be sure to go there!!! Thanks for the reminder that it is a photo shoot waiting to happen.

The chain link almost looks like an applied Photoshop filter. It adds an interesting texture to the image.
