Fishing tackle and floaty boats

Taking a brief break from the usual holiday fare of piles of food and peeling paint . .

Let’s take a look at another of my favourite photographic subjects – fishing tackle!

Yes, that’s right, whether it’s nets and buoys, rusty chains or lobster pots,  I love a good furtle around a working harbour!

I particularly enjoyed these neon pink and blue examples. Particularly pretty and girly for fishing tackle!

I also spotted these old paint splattered boards that look rather like works of modern art.

I am not sure if they were just testing boat colour samples on it or merely wiping excess paint off but the end result wouldn’t look out of place in a hyper modern art gallery.


Neither would the decaying but colourful wooden boat that I spotted in the dry dock.
