A kind neighbor loaned me a Nikon Coolpix S4000. I downloaded the 196 page long user manual, but did I even skim it before going out? I couldn't figure out how to make it zoom or go macro, but I got this shot.
Naturally, now that serious Compacts is back up, Flickr is about to go down!

I don't know if anyone will know this note is here but me, but it's too funny. To make the Coolpix zoom? There's a little dial in front of the shutter release! How retro!

Beautiful photograph.

It reminds me of the lyrics of an old English sailors' song, 'The Grey Funnel Line', about the loneliness of going to sea and being at sea, and the yearning (of many if not most sailors) to return home again. The song begins -

Don't mind the wind or the rolling sea
The weary night never worries me
But the hardest time in a sailor's day
Is to watch the sun as it dies away

Seems to match this photo....which is very exceptional.
