While I'm a sucker for photographing nautical themed clothing by a harbor or the shore, gale-force winds are a good reason to stay more inland. Still even if the setting isn't perfectly on theme I can't resist a bit of theatrical dressing. I have no aspirations of being an actress, but sometimes it's nice to dress like a character. Today it's a modern Gene Kelly naval musical (sort of like how Shirley Maclaine saw him in What A Way To Go)--so on-the-nose nautical as to be ridiculous. Boat shoes or a sailor's rucksack would have really overdone things!
