Photo gallery: Hipstamatic photos from Times photographer Jim Damaske

On Tuesday we posted an amazing lightning strike photo that Times photographer Jim Damaske shot with his iPhone.

Today we have some more iPhone photos from Jim. We'll let him explain:

"The other day I had an assignment to photograph the Windlasses, a Dunedin based womens sailing club, getting their boats ready for their upcoming sailing season. A couple days earlier I'd had lunch in a fish restaurant that had a lot of old black-and-white fishing and boat photos on the wall, which made me feel nostalgic for the old photography. When I went to the Windlasses assignment I decided to use a little modern technology in the form of the phone's Hipstamatic camera app - which can be set to create an old-style look to photos - to create some black-and-white photos for fun."

Members of the Windlasses, a women's sailing club that sails out of the Dunedin Marina, are getting ready for their upcoming Fall sailing season. They spent a recent morning in the marina's boat house checking the Optimist Prams to make sure they had all their rigging and that their sails were in good shape. They will be having their new member coffee and orientation on Aug 27 from 9:30 to 11:30. Windlasses sail on Thursday mornings during the school year. Membership is open only during August and September each year. The purpose of the organization is to encourage women sailors to improve their sailing skills, to sponsor races and cruises in Prams and Sunfish, and to compete with other women's sailing clubs on the Florida Gulf Coast. They race Optimist Prams and Sunfish.
