Sometimes during a flight, I've wondered: what was it that caught our attention and moved us to take a quick snap of something? Looking at it hours later on the ground, sometimes the motivation for that impulse is instantly clear to us.
This time it was clear soon after the first snap of the harbor, when we zoomed in and saw the clear notch cut through white foam by the line of sailboats. The fishing boat stood out because none of the other inbound fishing boats had such a large following of gulls. Did the crew feed them? Could they smell a hold full of fresh fish from a good catch? Is it often the unusual that captures our attention?
