I drove two hours to my favorite drydock hoping the rain would hold off for a while. I found a rusted out old blue barge that someone is repairing – it looks beyond repair to me – and it had the most marvelous mess of cracked paint and rust and paint splatters all over it. Unfortunately it was in the water which luckily was very shallow. I found a flat log that I dumped in the murky water and managed to stand on to shoot, put my tripod into the water (and mud!) and attempted to take some macro shots further away from the subject than I like to be (24" instead of 4"). I managed not to fall in and got a few shots. But then came the rain, so that was the end of that adventure.
