Bateaux bleus











I started thinking about boats, and other things, and writing about them.  But it got long, and Friday night ran out on me, and who wants to read long posts then anyway...

So meanwhile, boatyard blues.

Oh, William Morris would have loved these blues!

that third picture is divine. I don't know what it is, but I love it! maybe that's partly why I love it.

Oh, mimosa and now cool blues. Magnificent!

Lovely rich blues. I like how when you zoom in you get the textures; I don't think I've thought about the texture of boats before.

Oooh, lovely blues, rather Yves Klein blue! The last one with the rusty red spot is my favourite.

Such pre-raphaelite blues.

Impressionist art, every one. But #4 is lookin' at me funny.

Thanks so much, what a nice response for a Friday overnighter. A boatyard is pretty much as good as an art gallery to me, without the strain of feeling that I need to have a cultured opinion about it.

I'm still uncertain about the large sized dispay. It's great for landscape format, but portrait means you can't see all the picture, and that's unsatisfactory... but now the next size down just looks titchy. Clicking on them will get them to a comfortable screen size, but the object was to avoid having to do that. Ho hum.

I wish I had the talent to compose a Delta Blues song here.

One might almost say that the more abstract they are, the more compelling.
