I was fascinated by the port activities in Saint John, New Brunswick. Admittedly, I love almost anything related to salt water but to me areas where freight and cargo are moved from ship to shore and vice versa always seem more industrial than coastal. But, I did spend some time surveying the “landscape” of the port area and found there were many little scenes with spots of bright color or juxtaposition of elements that I felt might make for interesting photo compositions.
Harborside: A Study of Lines depicts one of those scenes. The addition of textures, some dodging and burning, and a few brush strokes take an industrial setting and transforms it into more of an abstract piece by emphasizing the lines in the image.
