Moving on a float house 1

The other day I traveled down the Sansum Narrows on a float house. The current was mostly right and except for a few choppy spots it was clear sailing.

Foam logs keep most float houses afloat and before this house set of on its sea journey its logs were securely strapped to avoid any untoward possibilities.
After disconnecting all its life lines the house was taken out of marina boundaries and handed over to the captain and his tug.
Back on the docks were those we left behind waving us out, and also there was our friend the sparrow who did not want us to see he had tears in his eyes.
We had set sail.

About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

  1. Oh my goodness, Joseph, what a wonderful series… I have so many questions my friend. I hope the move is for a positive reason, you’re in our hearts and prayers…
