A morning Waterfront Field Trip (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
The early morning light was bright yellow, which immediately I connected to the colour of the rope on this dock. I inverted my tripod head to get my camera right down to the dock level, and then used my 17mm tilt-shift lens to ensure my depth of field extended from the very front of the image to the bollard upon which the rock was tied.
Whenever I find myself at a loss for things to photograph, I fall back upon composition as a way to create an image - I look for lines, shapes and forms which I can use to construct a composition, regardless of content.
I have always loved the look of worn paint, and in this image, set against the new and pristine canvas cover, it became even more of a contrast in textures.
