Here’s an interesting and somewhat eerie perspective of the Mattie Joan work boat berthed at her home dock on Broad Creek. This was in my view directly across the creek from where my boat is docked. Early morning light reflecting off the boat and dock house, which were surrounded by woods, enabled me to exaggerate the shadows and isolate the subject. Deltaville, Virginia. May 28, 2011.

These two fellows, who were fishing on Jackson Creek near the Deltaville Maritime Museum, capture the essence of what I call “Rivah Culture”. Casual garb, sunshades, hats, fishing, boat and a lazy afternoon. They had it all. I’m sure there were more than a few beers in the cooler.
