Entry in the Colton Hall* Call for Art - Moss Landing Fishing Boat
Well, here we go again, another competition. I rather like this image. Will helped me pick it. It’s different in a number of ways.
The contest is themed for The Central Coast. I figure all sorts of folks will submit Big Sur, Carmel, Pigeon Pt etc images. You know, big, grand stuff. So I thought I’d go for the Italian, Portuguese and other fisherman and zoom in on something gritty and real, in this case the rugged prow of one of their fishing boats. I also doubt there will be much black and white in the competition. I am hoping this will make my work stand out.
This actually did not take me long to make up my mind. I like the image, bold and strong like the fishermen who sail her.
