Five images, best viewed at full size.

I have the suspicion  that my muses arrived at the shipyard several hours ahead of me and staged countless perfectly balanced scenes for my photographing pleasure.

For example:

The arc of the pipe above is purely wonderful and its cool silver looks elegant against the flat gunmetal gray. What I didn’t see until I was reviewing my shots at home was the cryptic scrawl “God is.

If there was more to that message, I missed it. On the other hand, perhaps it is such a profound sentiment that it needs no other words. Enough said.

The entire yard is filled with ship parts patiently waiting to be assembled (or reassembled) into fully-functioning freighters and barges and, as you can see in this next shot, carefully labelled.  I can only imagine that, when the time is right, all those pieces are fitted together like a sea-going Rubik’s Cube.

My personal favorite. It would appear that original measurements have been crossed out and reworked, leaving the impression that the barge has been covered with runes:

Oh, wait. This is a favorite as well:

    Excellent! Am I imagining things, or is there an image emerging from the mists in #3, right hand side?

    • Holy wah, Andy…I believe you are right. (He has a goatee?) I cannot tell if that is a prior image peeking through or a perfect storm of lines and markings that have created the effect, but now I see it.
      And, no…that is not an inadvertent selfie. 🙂

  2. I love the last image! I love the texture, the peeling surface, I love it all……
