The Fisherman

What can any photograph tell you about attactions? By that I mean, how do the visual elements relate to one another? Do they tell a cohesive story?  

Mirrors or windows, our photographs always attach themselves to our Point of View. We know how that works.

Here, it's easy to identify with the lone fisherman. Blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean fill the gap between the individual and the immense cruise line ships in the background. The fisherman and the cruise liners appear to be a world apart and yet, the blue gulf between them contains both the attraction and detachment.
