I guess no one uses the boat shed anymore.

A very poignant, atmospheric photo.

What a sun-drenched photograph. I love the way humans have tried to take over this margin between water and land...not entirely successfully. Your photograph, however, is a complete success.

Thank you, Brattcat! What a wonderful comment!

It almost has a dream-like quality to it.

a reality check via a 'water colour' an unflattering photo is a change (in relation to all of the blogs, some more than others)
Just how do you think up your creative comments? Thanks. And you wrote 'gender' there - a word that seems lost and neglected now.

Hi Julia...I see photography as art. We can't capture "reality" no matter how hard we try. Everything modifies the scene we photograph -- our camera, our settings, the way we compose it, the light (which is always changing)...and the minute we snap the shutter, the object of our attention has changed in myriads of ways.

Furthermore, no two people see the same "reality." Everyone has their own unique vision, thus no two photographs are exactly the same. Nor should they be - we are capturing a moment in time, which no longer exists a moment later, and we are, because we have no choice, viewing that moment from our own unique perspective.

I guess I see photography as "painting" with a camera and whatever other "technology" exists for me to use on my canvas.

Well, sorry to ramble...I get started and can't shut up. I'll quit now.

Peace!
