Buoys and Pots

Lobster Pots and Buoys (click to enlarge)

Another lobster pot image taken on the pier at Port Morien, Nova Scotia.  Since the pots were pretty weather beaten, I went ahead and converted the pots to black and white and left color in the buoys and lines.  A little different look that gives the image sort of a split personality.

Besides a blacksmith shop, the other subjects I just cannot walk by without setting up my camera are … lobster pots.  Can’t walk past them without capturing images.  A stack of lobster pots make for the classic repeating pattern composition.

I took this image on the pier at Port Morien, Nova Scotia.  When we drove through the town almost every house had a display set up in their front yard with people dummies.  We had no idea what was going on until a week or two later when we met someone from Port Morien in a B&B in Wolfville.  They said the decorations were part of the Port Morien people celebration, Morien Memories.  This is a come home weekend celebration where former residents come back to visit.  Sort of like a high school reunion for the entire town.

Bottle Shelf, Highland Village, Nova Scotia

Here are antique bottles on a shelf in one of the houses at Highland Village in Iona, Nova Scotia.  The original had the brownish two-tone bottles up against a beige wall.  Too much beige for me so I used Silver Efex Pro to convert to black and white.

The village has several buildings full of knick-knacks.  If it rains while you are there, duck into one of the buildings (or huts!), and spend some time photographing knick-knacks and details.
