Something “NEW” from the Boat shed.

Posted by mervfrench on October 27, 2008

You’ve seen it a million times but ever wondered what the boat shed looks at everyday. Well here it is. I went down to the boat shed but there not much that hasn’t been done with this so I thought I’d try a new angle. Nothing fancy here, no photoshop, I would just like to show those that don’t know what”s in front.

  1. Merv – I love the composition, the jetty really focuses the eye on the neo-vernacular design of the exclusive and elegant dwellings on the foreshore. The saturation and the movement in the water are just simply sublime as with the tonal contrast which produces a sense of overall wellbeing.

    This is such a keeper and has certainly brought a smile to my face – cheers Merv

    How much for a signed print by the way?

    never even walked out on the jetty!
    most of the buildings are pretty bloody warped unfortunately…. was it a stitch?

    Thank’s Richard, that’s exactly what I thought about the picture …You know what they say “If you have to ask the price ,you can’t afford it”

    Dylan’s a wide angle, probably 10ml or close to it.

    That made me smile Merv

  5. Great shot Merv, thanks very much for showing me what the boat shed looks at! I actually didn’t realise there were buildings etc and I’m amazed there aren’t 10 Perth photographers on shore shooting panoramas of the good ole boat shed 😀

    one of photography’s simple rules. Don’t forget to look behind you.
    Great shot of an iconic spot in Perth. I love the concept.
