Some time ago Chris Low, one of our regular crew members took a photo of G-whizz on the Greenwich Flying Squadron pontoon. He then sent the photo to a friend of his in London, I think just to say look at what I’m doing while you’re over there enjoying a wonderful London Winter.
Carla, Chris’s friend, apparently has a habit of looking at a photo and then doing a painting from the image. have a look at what she did with that original photo of G-whizz, we think it to be pretty good.
I have always appreciated great photography, maybe it is because I’ve tried to create art through photography and failed miserably. This picture was taken by “Salty Dingo” at Sail Port Stephens 2017, it shows G-whizz under her symmetrical spinnaker, entering Port Stephens close to Yacaaba Head (the northern head). It is not so much a picture of G-whizz, but a piece of art that G-whizz happens to be in. Ann and I like it.
