Saw this old boat at a children's farm today
...and more than just "a lick of" paint!
Well spotted, well framed, well processed. The sepia befits the subject.
Thanks Tirediron & LaFoto
I'm not so sure about that; if you gave it any more than a lick, it would likely fall apart!
That is nice. I like the sepia too.
Let me know though, am I correct in thinking they ~grow children there?- like in rows?
No they don't grow children there It's one of those places kids can get an idea of farm animals etc and farm life etc
I think it's pretty strong actually even though it doesnt look like it Kids play around on it all the time I believe
or maybe two licks of paint or even just slobber the paint on there.
This photo makes me feel bad for the poor boat. It was created to serve a purpose it can no longer fulfill.
I'm a weirdo like that. The image is great, and helps me see what sort of image works with the sepia tone. I have a tendency to overuse it myself.
I keep drifting into the surreal- tidy rows of children; a patch of girls in pretty skirts, a patch of boys wearing flannel shirts.
Thanks- That's a flood of memories! My grandfather had an old boat on a trailer at his farm. We used to move the cement block out from under the tongue, to rock the 'ship' back and forth on its wheels as if we were at sea. My uncles were in the navy, so we had the appropriate naval caps to add to the game.
It's probably getting more use now from the kids climbing and playing on it that visit there than it ever did as an actual boat on the water At least its not rotting somewhere forgotten etc...
Yeah it's good I think when we see a pic of something that reminds us of those childhood moments - Happy carefree times
Wow, really cool! I love photography of abandoned stuff like this, and the sepia looks very nice.
