Focus on Architecture: Story Behind the Photo

We will be highlighting winning photographs from the 2010 Focus on Architecture competition during the next few weeks, along with the story behind the photo. This week’s photo was taken by Michael Riccio at the Lighthouse Tender Lilac and was selected as a winner in the Details category. The judges enjoyed the contrast and the whimsical nature of the hatches pointed in different directions.

This shot is of a closed and locked door on the main deck of the boat. The entire boat was open to wander around in, and much of it was either renovated or in need of renovation. This door looked somewhat recently painted, both the white door and black hatches. It stood out as a nice contrast, and the water staining on the corner shows the perils of restoring a boat that is still on the water. The preservationists on the boat have done a great job despite the difficulties.

See the rest of the winning photos here and stay tuned for more stories behind the winning photographs!
