Blog: New Release Of Space Dinghies! - 8/28/2020

Check out my new photographs 'Space Dinghies' and 'Space Dinghies in a Row'! I took these two photographs on June 8, 2020 at Monterey, California in the early morning hours before the shops on Fisherman's Wharf opened. I love how these little boats seem to float in black space as if they are spaceships docked at some space station in another universe.

I loved isolating the two center dinghies in 'Space Dinghies' but I also wanted a photograph of all of them. I love the color of the various little boats and how they float on the sea of black in the early morning light. I love this concept of these boats sitting in dark water as if sitting in the vastness of space being docked at some space station in another universe. I was standing above them looking almost straight down and I love this perspective.

For this image I shot multiple vertical images hand held as I leaned over the railing and panned from left to right as I shot using the line of the dock to keep my reference point. I then stitched all of those images together in Adobe Lightroom and cropped the image to this 1:3 ratio panoramic.

Snooping around Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey early in the morning has its privileges. For one, no one else is around. 30 years ago when I lived in Monterey I frequently went to the wharf early in the morning. On this trip I did it again and it paid off! I loved finding these dinghies tied to the pier and the perspective of looking straight down on them gave such an interesting view. The black water of the early morning makes them look as if they are floating in a sea of black space as if they are docked at a space station somewhere in another universe. I really love the peeling paint of green and yellow and the rustic blue and white on these old boats.
