By Christopher Moraff- While I was inspired by the magestic image sent by Sarah Al- Sayegh, I was initially quite challenged to come up with an association. It seemed so far removed from my setting. I decided that I wanted to keep the marine theme, and if possible even the boat theme, but being an urban dweller, I wanted to impart a more gritty edge, something that wasn't beautiful in a traditional sense, something utilitarian. And so I remembered this sandy little strip of the Delaware just outside the city.  When I saw this boat, I felt that I had what I was looking for. I was able to keep a boat/water frame but move it away from the picture perfect vibe that Al- Sayegh's lovely photograph inspires.
