Main drag, Marie Joseph

The community of Marie Joseph is an interesting place to photograph. Several large boats are hauled up near the road which you can’t help noticing, there is a crane, a derelict ice breaker and many smaller things. It’s quite a concentration of unique stuff for a 300m stretch of rural road. (more…)

Old fishing boat, Marie Joseph

In October, last year, I photographed this vessel for the first time. My compositions do not differ significantly though I feel the final results are technically superior.

So for a few minutes I leaned against the thing, catching my breath not exactly sure if I should keep going forward. I decided being stuck meant being stuck, if it was worse 50 meters on I would not be much worse off. If I found some hard ground I would be able to get turned and continue on with my day.
