Literature

Black-and-white image of a ship on a body of water. There are two wooden poles in the foreground, along the right side of the image, and a short wooden pole in the left side of the image. The poles are possibly part of a dock. There is a body of water in the middle ground, and in the background, along the horizon, there is a large ship.
