getting thrown out of Marshall Boat Works

Probably what photographers are SUPPOSED to do is ask permission before going into the Marshall Boat Yard, but I think a more creative approach is to arrive at 7AM and hope that nobody is there or will be arriving soon.

I was looking for forms and designs and I think I found a few.

I became almost hypnotized by the repeating lines and shapes of this boat.

I was captivated by the morning light.

And I tried my best to understand the cable and pulley system that gives a crane like this such great lifting power.

While I was standing there trying to figure it all out someone in a house way across the road (Highway One) rapped at their window -- effectively bouncing me out of the yard. I left quickly.

All in a morning's work for the photographer from AphotoAday...

Dear Donald:

Send them a link and maybe you'll be invited with breakfast included next time. Beautiful shots.

I love the dead-on shot of the boat. It reminds me of a shot a good friend of mine took many years ago in a photography class we were both in. There is such wonderful drama in those simple lines...
