Color

Obviously, the unifying theme is color but the patterns and textures ar also interesting to me. Because of the patterns and textures, I think the images would work well in black and white, also.

On the Road

Today Al and I did a shortish road trip around near Clems, SC and found a few oldies but goodies which I photographed. While decrepit these objects have a certain life and beauty.

Old Boats

During our stay in Maine I saw lots of “retired” fishing boats in various states of disrepair and certainly not seaworthy. They imply a long history, much of which one can make up just by looking.

Coast of Maine

Coastal Maine is one of my favorite places and in the nest blog series I will try to share the experience. The first thing I think about coastal Maine is lobster fishing and eating.

Lunenberg Revisited

One of the many joys of photography has to do with memory. Most of us shoot images for many reasons and one of my major reasons is to remember places I have visited and to which I have responded. I go back to review and remember. Some photos appeal to me more than when I first looked at them and others can be better edited because I have gained some new skills. For those few who follow this blog who may not be photographers, “Try it, you’ll like it!”

The Lobsterman’s World

All around Lunenburg there are small coves which house a few lobstering boats and associated buildings. This group of photographs represents a long look at such a cove. The building, boats. shapes and colors are what attracted me.

Wandering

We spent a good bit of time just riding around and stopping to take pictures and on this particular wander we found a defunct fish processing plant, I suspect it was a lobster processing plant.  After shooting the building we wandered to the shore where i did a number of shots of a boat bobbing tied to the buoy.

The Dory Shop, Lunenburg

The Dory Shop in Lunenburg builds dories of all sizes as well as schooners for more long distance sailing and they have a school where a person can learn to build a dory. The place is great outside and inside.

Save

Fog

We had a few foggy mornings in Lunenburg and the surrounding countryside which made for really atmospheric pictures. I suspect that lobstermen could do without the fog during lobstering season.
