Spotlight on: Maritime Themed Photography

Updated 7/26/19

Even if you’re not a boater, you may enjoy images evoking sand and water.  I was fortunate to work at a campus on Brooklyn’s shoreline for several years in a neighborhood called Manhattan Beach.

On breaks, I would wander around looking for things to photograph. The knots and twists and fraying of ropes was particularly interesting for me. These are a few of those images. A few of these I have in inventory, theses have PayPal buttons below the image
