There were many grand vistas to record with my camera during the recent trip to coastal Maine. But I was also searching for some different subjects that tell a story about the area. Any composition that features simplicity is a bonus. This lone, white boat, weathered from the seasons and use, definitely fit the bill.
While the boat was floating, I patiently waited until it was positioned on a diagonal. The story line is supported by many elements: wooden oars with chippy paint; reflection in the shallow water; cotton rope tied to the dock; scuffed deck where the rower sits; gentle water that envelopes the overall scene.
Do you want to get in the boat with me and go for a row?
