With the 3,500 pound, 16 foot long Great White Mary Lee swimming just off the south shore of Long Island these days I can't help thinking about:
i) how many barrels would Quint use to try to keep her up,
ii) wouldn't Hooper and Brody have to evade all of the sharks that would be attracted by the floating remains of THE shark before they are able to paddle to shore?,
iii) who was Mayor (of shark city) Vaughn's tailor?,
iv) this fantastic boat hull that I photographed in Portugal.
I don't have answers for the first three questions, but I have this photo of the hull of Nitucha, a shark fishing boat that I saw abandoned and listing on a boat launch in the Marina de Portimao in the Algarve region on the southern coast of Portugal earlier this year. Sharks all around the Algarve are swimming more easily knowing that this vessel is out of the water.
If you're looking for safe land activities, then get ready for the show that I will be in at the White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton. It's the first of two shows where I will be a featured artist, and I will have a number of my boat hull photos in the exhibition. The show runs from June 7th to June 26th, with an opening reception on Saturday, June 11th. I'm excited to be part of a gallery that shows interesting work (go to the opening tonightof the Golden Age of Rock and Roll show!) including rock photography and street art - two favorites of mine.
Meanwhile, I've done some editing to the format of my site and have recently added lots of new photos. As many of you know, I love writing about my boat hull photos and posting them on Instagram and Facebook - sort of mini blog entries. I've added those posts as captions to the photos, or have linked to the Instagram post when space would not accommodate my full rambling. Click on each photo to see if there is a comment about that image.
As always, thanks for your interest in my photography and let me know what you think!
