Small Wooden Boat

Small Wooden Boat

Here’s another shot from my kayak adventures with Jenny on Broad Creek last weekend. This small wooden boat, a miniature deadrise, made the perfect subject for this somewhat symmetrical shot comprised of wood and water. While the boat is center frame, the boathouse door provided the imbalance to make this visually interesting. I’m a huge fan of the old, wooden deadrise boats, and this shiny little replica offered a stark contrast to the usual work boats I normally photograph. I enjoy shooting from my kayak, but am limited to my Canon PowerShot since I’m not inclined to take my Nikon DSLR in a one-man vessel that can easily capsize. June 10, 2012.
Specs: Canon PowerShot, F/9, 1/320, ISO 80.

  2. I love this shot. What is that hanging on the building between the two gray posts — a shadow? It seems to have that shade of blue on the boat’s stripe.

    • Hi Darla, thanks for the comment. I think that is a hose hanger (with no hose). There was likely a hose there for washing down boats. The shadow it makes on the wall does have a similar shade to the shadow made by the boat’s gunnel (the top edge of the side). I’m glad you liked the photo. — Rob
