Barge by the sea

While exploring the beaches by my new home I came upon an old barge sitting high and dry. At first glance I only saw an old barge but after walking around it two or three times I began to see the color and texture. The more I walked around it the more I saw. I give to you my images of that old barge. Sometimes we must look at the world from a different perspective in order to see the beauty that surrounds us. Instead of a hulking, washed up old barge I ended up seeing multitudes of patterns and colors as well as reflections from inside this now piece of art. The saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover" certainly held true for this subject.

Oh my goodness. Amazing colors. What an artful approach. I love the one near the end with the rusts and blues in sort of stripes. Very cool post.

You take what someone else might consider old, antiquated, no longer useful and convert it into artistic expression. Wonderful textures.
