Some pipe dreams…or dreamy pipes. More from Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay.






“The tides of time should be able to imprint the passing of the years on an object. The physical decay or natural wear and tear of the materials used does not in the least detract from the visual appeal, rather it adds to it. It is the changes of texture and colour that provide the space for the imagination to enter and become more involved with the devolution of the piece.”

    Dream on. I like these.

  3. I love the colors of these scaffolding sections, and the juxtaposition of how they were stacked in relation to each other. Obviously what ever workmen placed them there, had no aesthetic reason or plan; but at times human actions emulate nature in the way things seem to fall into place, a unique blend of complementing factors that make it seem like things do happen for a reason……and only seen when a crafty eyed photographer passes by and “sees” the beauty laid before her…..

    You see the extraordinary in the “ordinary”. Thanks, Patricia.
