A retired engineer from Goldsby, Oklahoma photographed an abandoned sailboat at a local shipyard.
The image has since been featured in several art institutions in Oklahoma and has been recognized with another award.
Bob Finley entered the photo in the Artists of the Arbuckles International Art and Photography show and won Grand Champion Best of Show two weeks ago.
The organization is based in Sulphur, Oklahoma and their gallery is located there.
“I have had lots of fun and interest with this photo,” Finley said.
Finley said he enjoys the seafood, restaurants, sunsets and the friendly people in the Laguna Madre Area and the photo opportunities.
