Ships at Sea


Well, I had to title it something and this sounded apt enough.  Both photos have a sea-vessel and the water they traverse upon, so “Ships at Sea” it is, even though I am not sure they would call it the Sea…  I’ve always been confused by that.

Growing up it was always the Sea, and protecting us from it was the Seawall, made sense….  now technically, the water to the horizon northwards from our shores is the Atlantic Ocean, I don’t think it is still the Caribbean Sea, and since I am being technical, both photos are not pointing Northwards but more West by North West, making that particular area of water the mouth of the Demerara River.

Aye, my head hurts from trying to sort that one out, so Sea or Ocean or River, its got a boat on the water.  They’ve both been done in monochrome to emphasise the clouds and the water, taken on different days but in generally the same location, on the stretch of beach along the Kingston shore.

  1. When I saw those two, my first thought was that, having a wide angle lens on the camera, I’d never get decent shots of them. Clearly I fell into one of the biggest traps that a photographer can; dismissing an opportunity without even trying.

    Good thing you didn’t make the same mistake.

  2. Well I guess you could have also called it “Where the River Meets the Sea” Love the pictures. What cloudes. Pity it was a trawler and not a sail boat.:-)
