This old row boat fascinated me.
The dents, the old piece of wood holding the back together,
the many different colors and scratches of paint on the side.
And the foot prints in the sand from someone who pulled it
up onto the sand.
This crop of the same photo shows the footprint up close.
The other side of the boat lets you see the wood
that seems to be holding it together in the back. I wonder why
it is there, what happened and how long ago?
This close crop of that other side shows details up close.
I love how the sand is clinging to the side. That is a detail I
did not see in the initial image or when taking the photo.
It’s the dents and imperfections of this old boat that make it beautiful to me.
We don’t have dents like these, but we all have imperfections, things about ourselves that we would just as soon the world did not know about. But isn’t all of that part of who we are? Don’t the stories behind those bumps in life make us better individuals?
