Today James Gulliver Hancock offers us another delightful post from his latest project, where we learn that he possesses not just artistic talent, but a little poetic license too! - Jenny x

Can't say I've ever been to Staten Island, but there are these HUGE orange ferries that leave the bottom of Manhattan, I've sat down there in the sunset, and these boats almost match the fading sunlight... it's gorgeous.

You really get a sense of the New York City archipelago down at the bottom of Manhattan, all these boats, and little islands... If an old clipper goes past, it almost feels like I should be learning to speak dutch so I can trade my sweet potatoes for a passage back to England...
