Reflecting – Seven

There’s an old boat on a beach I visit occasionally, it must have been there a while.

The first time I photographed the boat, I captured it all.  A front view looking out to sea and a side view down the beach, but somehow I wasn’t entirely satisfied.  I felt there was more to the boat than understanding where it lies, it seemed to have a soul and character of its own.

I’ve settled on this image, which won’t reveal the resting place but I feel it captures the soul, if only a boat could have one.
