At the Dock of the Bay

Sometimes the simplest things are compelling.  The water is nearly black.  The wood is textured and the metal bolts are corroded and fade into the color and grain of the wood.  The inserted piece in the lower center is balanced by the notch in the upper left.  I think there are nails or thin rods along the bottom edge, but I’m not sure what they are for.  I’m also looking much more carefully than I did when I took the photo — another reason I do this!

  1. Before I started following your blog, I would probably have cropped the little green bit in the lower right. Since then I have come to appreciate what that tiny bit of color can bring to the piece.

  2. I didn’t even notice it when I took the shot. But I do recall wondering, when I created this entry, whether I should comment on it, and decided to let it speak for itself. A happy accident in a bit of bright green! (And your comment pleases me; thank you!)
