our discussion of the "everything" photo, here, representing the Classic Boat Festival, is the kind of photo that seems to be the opposite of the "everything" photo. Although it is still quite busy it is pretty clearly focused on that weird ventilation pipe. To me this kind of pipe always brings up nautical associations though I know such pipes are also found on the roofs of tall buildings. However, in this photo, the canvas wrapped lifeboat and the signal flags in the background affirm the nautical nature of the photo. I also like the many geometrical shapes and diagonal lines in this photo, most of which are in dynamic opposition to the ventilation pipe and its uncompromising upright stance.
