There is something about boats that has beguiled photographers for more than a century. The photo above from the Australian National Maritime Museum dates back to around 1928. It shows sloops racing on the choppy waters of Sydney Harbour.
As part of Marine Café Blog’s efforts to promote maritime culture in general, I am inviting photographers — both amateur and professional — to join our search for outstanding black & white photos depicting the world of boats. The best of the lot will be featured in the blog that they may delight and inspire readers worldwide.
