I was on board the Polly Woodside last year. Armed with my Lensbaby Muse I was capturing everything in sight. In the crew cabins were these old photos of unnamed people and buildings. I could only assume they were loved ones and places of the sailors and workers. There was something really creepy about it all..

This is a manipulation of three of those photos, blended together with textures.
