Once was a fishing boat


My version of the boat that Murphys posted yesterday. It was a grey damp afternoon but it seemed to polish up OK.

One it was a blue craft then Les - but I wonder what it did for a living?
Les Auld: The wrecks are fishing boats Chris, after the collapse of the fishing industry in the 60s and 70s some were just left to rot away. This one is believed to be the fishing vessel FD119, the Clarain. Thanks for the comment.

You guys are like two peas in a pod. I love what you both do...so well, I might add! As I've said before (and will surely say again!), you both are my heroes! smile
Les Auld: Thanks you Ginnie, interesting idea about the peas.
Great subject, Les - I think you could another one out of a close up of that coloured panel!
Les Auld: It would also work quite well as a texture to use as a layer in other pictures. Thanks for the comment Tom.
I like this one too..
Muphy's B&W version was beautiful..but this one actually is too.

I like the colors at the front! Nice contrast with the rest..

I love the worn out look..nice nice smile
Les Auld: It does all work together Nadiuska, either in colour or monochrome, thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: A quick wipe with Photoshop and up it comes, thanks for the comment Linda.
A fine image Les..but it has a sad story.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, you do wonder what our government was doing back then.
So completely different than Michaels Les and very enjoyable as well.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, just shows how different people view things.
It's always interesting to see the different take people have on a subject Les. Cracking picture
