Maine boatyards are full of interesting things

There is always something that catches the eye of my camera. Boatyards are wondeful for interesting things. There was just something that made me want to take a picture of rusty chains around tarps. The colors are so vibrant.

This actually came about as I was looking through old photos I had taken for an show I'm in this fall. A friend and I are doing an exhibit at Bowdoin College. We each have to supply 5 photos we've taken and swap them. Each of us will interpret the 10 photos in our repsective mediums. It's going to be a challenge!

The Lost Ladies

I can't bear to throw anything away when it comes to glass. "Never refuse to re-fuse" I've heard say many times. These funky ladies have emerged from the depths of my bucket of 'seconds'. I've put magnets on some and pin backs on others. They kind of reminded me of the Lost Boys in Peter Pan. These girls are fun and full of attitude.
You never know what's coming next...and to me, that's the fun of it all!
