Friday Evening on the Bay

A float house moves at all times. Sometimes it dances but more often the movement goes unnoticed, like quiet breathing. Using a tripod on a float house to photograph the outside surroundings is almost as silly as using a level here to install cabinets. Not much choice tho, and the camera was set on a tripod in my upstairs to take these photographs. Afterward they needed some slight straightening, and here you see the results.


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.

    These are beautiful Joseph. I love the quality of light on the water, the blue except around the dock lights and those wet west coast clouds.

  2. Great photos! I can only imagine you were nice and cozy inside your floating house.

    • Just bobbing along, Angeline, just bobbing along and thinking of hibernating. These days when the rains pound on this flat roof, the camera tends to look more from the inside out, I suppose.

  3. What a lovely scene you look out upon, Joseph! I think I’d be hard-pressed to ever leave! Wonderful photographs that really share the mood and character of a damp island evening!!

    • I’m very happy you like these Photographs Mr Toad. Taking photos is always such an adventure, doesn’t matter where you are. Views here are from one side of the house only, which is a bit limiting, but for now it’ll have to do.
