Best if viewed Larger. Macro shot of the side of a derelict boat sitting in dry dock. It was very much the worse for wear and had a notice slapped on the hull warning the owner that if the boat wasnt moved by a certain date it would be confiscated. This would probably suit the owner as the boat had outlived its usefulness to put it mildly and it would save the owner the cost and trouble of getting rid of it!

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

    This is very interesting All those parellels are dizzying.

  • Im not sure the person doing the repair really knew what they were doing – as you observe, all the parallels are a bit dizzying!
