Luxury Afloat!

Luxury Afloat!
Underneath the façade of rusty iron, is a near new house boat! The owner came across an oyster shed being demolished, and gave the old building a new lease on life! I would love to meet this man, I think our sense of humor runs in a parallel direction!
Taken at 1.00 P.M. at 1/160th f11.0 and ISO-250.
