Beauty in the Boatyard

Maddie is an artist, adn she can see things most mere mortals overlook.


We have just been painted and the workers in the yard came and sanded off a few layers of our old bottom paint. Then it rained and the blue dust washed away a little bit . After the rain, we were simply walking from the boat to the town to grab some lunch when Maddie asked for my camera. I saw nothing in the area that merited a photograph, but I did not question her.

She instantly snapped this picture and we continued on.

She saw the blue bottom paint in the puddle mixing with the reflection of the blue sky and our bow, in a puddle of filthy antifouling paint dust. She found beauty in the light that was reflected off of rubbish. She has an artist’s eye!
