Three Boats. Corea Maine.
As I was taught growing up in a nautically oriented seagoing family, the difference between a boat and a ship is: you can put a boat on a ship but you can't put a ship on a boat.
Made this yesterday on a bug-out from the island to go somewhere else to make photos for a while. Sometimes you just have to change your surroundings to see in order to want to make new photographs (read that as 'sometimes I have to'). Don't get me wrong, there is so much to photograph on here on MDI (Mount Desert Island) that you could fill many lifetimes with varied projects. It becomes a creative block sometimes though if you keep thinking things like "there's more out there that I'm not standing in front of". So I took a quick trip up to one of my favorite little fishing villages downeast called Corea and put myself in front of something different. Not that this particular scene is any different than what I would see around here, it's just that being in an unfamiliar place opened my eyes to seeing it more interesting then. So here's a one: while I was making these exposures and waiting for the dock to settle these three lobstermen pulled in to their mooring (it was the end of the day for them which is usually about 2:30- 3:00), and then rowed in to this dock that I was photoing. So I moved my tripod and such to not block the ladder and after I said a hearty 'hey now' to the guys the older fellow say's to me "so how's the picture takin' business these days?" in nothing more than a something to say kind of way, so I give him a "not making a million that's for sure" or something like that and he laughs a "well lobsterun sure isn't either with the prices we're gettin' these days". I don't know what the point is other then it's nice to say hi and share a how do you do with people, especially when you're camping out on their dock all tripodded up and all. Have a good one!
