Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details III

I like detail, I like zooming in to a focal point to see what has grabbed my attention.  I recently received a new camera (then I fell & broke it, and then luckily was covered by insurance so have replaced it) with a fantastic 24x zoom, much better than my previous compact camera.

Now I really can get lost in the details

I took this photo while out for a walk, but the boat really caught my eye

Appropriately named Wilson's Boatyard

Appropriately named Wilson’s Boatyard

so I zoomed in

I love the colour blue

I love the colour blue

And even more



I love the colours of the moss and algae, the blue of the paint, the different shades of red and orange inside the boat.  All the different pieces of wood and nails and the old rusted fittings, all perfectly contrasted by the dark green leaves behind.

Here are my other entries: Orchid & Tennis Ball

This also fits into Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week: Colour of your choice – Mine will always be Blue 🙂

    Snap! I once did a piece about an old boat, it was way back… I was supposed to be shopping for food!

    Wilson is a clever dog……. having his own boatyard!! 😆

    That’s a pretty small propeller to push such a big boat. I’ll bet Wilson (the dog) could swim faster than that boat goes doing his doggie paddle.

      I don’t think it ‘goes’ ay all any more. Props are that small aren’t they? We have a sailing boat and it’s prop is much smaller. We had a huge boat once & it’s prop wasn’t big either

    Lots of detail in this picture, Barbara. I like the sign “Wilson and Sons,” that it’s a family business.
