While we were visiting Baiona Spain we learned that the Pinta, one of the ships sailing with Christopher Columbus had arrived in where to announce to Europe that they had discovered the new world. The citizens of Baiona were the first to hear the news and celebrate the date of his arrival every year.
There is a replica of the ship in harbour, built as a museum. We spent a little time on board, and I have to say it was small, it is hard to believe about 25 men sailed across the atlantic, twice!
Using the sun and the big sky to photograph the “man” on the ropes hoping he would look more like a man at work then a mannequin! It was an interesting exercise for me to find a creative angle to photograph this little piece of history.
These image and many others are available for viewing and purchase at my gallery.
