A Waterfront Field Trip (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia)

Every day like clockwork, trains run through the Dartmouth waterfront, and on this occasion, the engine had particularly strong weathering on it - I wish it had stopped, as I would have really enjoyed making some details of it.

On such a drab afternoon, the bright yellow cable and plug caught my eye, and a long 300mm lens was pulled into play, to throw the background out of focus, and simplify the context.

It is hard not to be sucked into reflections when working around boats and water - in this case, i tried to balance them with a very formal composition of the two hulls side by side; the curve of the dark boat to the corner was particularly pleasing, and mirrored in some ways by the line from the smaller boat.
