Artist's Description

They say that physical activity is a fountain of youth. I certainly agree when looking at the Tugboat Daniel McAllister !

This is the largest preserved tug in Canada, and the second-oldest preserved oceangoing tug in the world. She was originally launched in 1907 under the name of Helena , working the Atlantic coast. In the 1940s, she was converted from a steam to a diesel engine, while serving on the Great Lakes. She underwent a complete refit in 1956, and was renamed Helen M.B. Then she acquired her final name of Daniel McAllister in the 1960s (after a member of an important ship owning family), and retired from service in the 1980s. She is now displayed in the Old Port of Montreal, as part of the Musée maritime du Québec (maritime museum) to ensure her preservation.

This is a composite made of the three images below:

 My original image was shot in the Old Port of Montreal, 2 weeks ago. The boat looked so new compared to the old grain elevators in the background, which are only a year older, but look much more the worse for wear.
 One of the textures that I photographed on the same day, to which I added a vignette. Available for free download under a Creative Commons Licence.
 This texture is a photo of a rock wall stained with limescale that I shot three weeks ago. I thought that it fit the theme very nicely, and gave a nice aged look to the image. Also available for free download under a Creative Commons Licence.
