Classic Boat Festival


Yesterday I went down to Victoria’s inner harbour to gawk at all the wooden boats on display at the Classic Boat Festival. Naturally I had my camera. But I kept on being distracted from the boats by their reflections. This shot being but one of several examples, others of which you will likely see as I process the images.

I like it that the specks of stuff on the water look like stars in an evening sky.

    • Hi Melinda. I guess it is a departure though it felt perfectly natural to take this shot. And to invert (flip) it. Perhaps its a good sign when a departure from the norm goes by unnoticed, by me.


    • Hi David. I usually forget to go, hard as that is to admit. It is the long weekend, and there are always other priorities, even though I love wooden boats, and all that gleaming varnished mahogany, brass and chrome (as you will see in coming days), not to mention reflections.
