Sailing the Oceans of Bedsheets

This is wonderful: Guatemalan photographer Luis González Palma photographed a series of model ships "sailing" the rough oceans of bedsheets. Watch out for that iceberg, er pillow!

I don't know that a Guatemalan photographer would be familiar with Robert Louis Stevenson, but this certainly reminded me immediately of this poem:

The Land of Counterpane
by Robert Louis Stevenson

When I was sick and lay a-bed,
I had two pillows at my head,
And all my toys beside me lay,
To keep me happy all the day.

And sometimes for an hour or so
I watched my leaden soldiers go,
With different uniforms and drills,
Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;

And sometimes sent my ships in fleets
All up and down among the sheets;
Or brought my trees and houses out,
And planted cities all about.

I was the giant great and still
That sits upon the pillow-hill,
And sees before him, dale and plain,
The pleasant land of counterpane.
