Ropes & knots.

One of the many new experiences of our photo seminar was visiting the docks in Waldport & Newport to get up close and personal with the fishing and crab boat fleets.  The photo opportunities were extraordinary because we were able to go right up to the boats, the gear storage yards and walk through the commercial activity. 

 Specifically, the ropes and knots caught our eye.  This group of images are our view of this colorful integral part of shipboard fishing activity. 


  1. Beautiful photographs and stunning colors! Glad you had such a wonderful time, and thank you for sharing the experience!

  2. You're right! The ropes and knots are fantastic and the colors are surprising. Industrial art! They serve their purpose well and are a joy to look at. I'm still a purist - I really miss the days when the buoys were wooden, but I can't argue that the colors are incredible. Beautiful shots.
