Weekend Reflection - Dangar dinghy


How often is it, that what you see often depends on how you look at something. Half sunk beside the rotting jetty, I walked a horse-shoe around this little beauty and can only go part-way to capturing its beauty. What would it reveal in morning light, rather than this rapidly waning afternoon light. What would it be at other than mid-tide.


There is so much that we don't see of the world and the people around us because we don't give them enough time. Occasionally, we need to walk to the end of a rotting jetty and look back into the afternoon light.

Beautiful shots Julie.... In answer to your question: Shelley Beach - not sure on the spelling but I am pretty sure that was it...

Magpie said...

These are beautiful shots. I especially like the second one.

How glad we are you took the time to capture this. I love the remnants of worn red paint on the bow.

The quality of your pictures is always very good and these 3 pictures have an impressive blue. Nice job!

While I am nearly always up early, I am not usually out on the streets early. On the odd occasion I am, things do look and feel very different in the early morning light. Go on Julie. Early rise and take the boat and jetty in the morning light. They really are great photos.

Bruce Caspersonn said...

Yes that's very nice but I can hardly wait for your Jessica Watson photos.

Julie said...

Now, Bruce, do I even remotely look like a JW groupie?

As it turns though, I will be down at the Quay today lunchtime ... so will see.

Bruce Caspersonn said...

I thought as much.
