Portholes Throwing Light
It was choppy weather and I was standing in a long dingy room lined with 8 portholes on each side. I was on board Balclutha, a 300 square-rigged sail boat from 1886. Standing at one end of the room I was utterly captivated watching the sun-facing portholes throw light, in a perfectly synchronized arrangement, at the 130 year old floorboards. I wondered how, if at sea in the 1800s, this room might hold the only changing landscape for months. This is a video of one of the poertholes.
