Back at the Dock

Dinghies lined up and berthed at harbor on a chilly autumn day, make an almost-abstract composition. Long Island, New York.

  1. This image triggers certain memories or awarenesses in me. Makes me think of "the journey". It also reminds me of a tarot card (Six of Swords)... also a timely message for me.

    A few years ago, I experienced something for the first time: a flower reading. It's a form of divination and/or psychic impressions that I'd not previously been exposed to. Each person brings a flower and sets the flower on a table, then takes a seat. Once all the flowers are set and the people are in their seats, the reader enters the room, not knowing which person brought what flower.

    The reading I received was quite appropriate and right on target. One of the things the reader suggested for me is that I find a way to indulge in solitary time. He furthered his suggestion by saying he didn't mean go into a room and close a door, or soak in a tub, but the kind of solitary you can find by going out alone into the middle of a lake in a small boat... THAT kind of alone. Your image brings his message back to me... and the reminder is right on time.

    Beautiful photo. Beautiful memories.

    Thank you for sharing.


  2. I have always loved photos of boats and they make a great subject for pencil drawings all those lines and contours

  3. Really nice shot! I like the exposure and composition.

  4. Great tones! I love black and white photos!

  5. Hi...

    I just saw your comment... kind of funny in light of my Thursday post... Your artwork is incredibly beautiful and your site equally so... you seem to have a knack for capturing the tranquility and stillness within nature, which "underneath the surface" is bustling with activity... and this boat pic is incredible... the contrast is starkly amazing... very sharp... look forward to viewing more of your work...

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing... Happy Holidays!



  6. Hi Ruthie,

    Having read over time, my share of psychology and self-help and spiritulity books, I know that focus and proactiveness and intention and self-talk, etc., go together! Common sense dictates we can't have one without the others!

    Thanks for your kind words re: my blog. I'm glad to meet you in cyberspace, and hope to visit with you often! :)

    Happy holidays and blessing to you!
