There’s something about a boat (like the one above in Sanur, Bali.) Partly, I think it’s about water, imagining the waves sloshing and spraying against the sides, but, to me, it’s comforting to see boats — fishing boats especially. When traveling, I always try to get shots with boats displaying flags.
Again, scenes like this are part of a culture’s daily life that, really, would it be all that exciting if I saw this at home? Actually, I am just that snap happy, because, not even thinking about it, I took photos this summer of boats in my home state of Minnesota.
Finale Ligure, Italy — fishing boats at sunset.
Friesland, Netherlands — a variety of boats.
Geneva, Switzerland — a boat behind a gate (I just liked this angle with the flag in the foreground.)
Off Delos, Greece — a fishing boat.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico — A lineup of water taxis.
Wayzata, Minnesota — recreation boats.
I lived in a Sumatran fishing village for three years, and I loved watching the boats bob along the shoreline.
Traci — that’s definitely the description I was looking for — thank you! I would love to see those Sumatran fishing boats. Thanks again for your comment! Steph 🙂
