As a photographer, you're probably used to friends and family saying: 'what are you photographing that for, it's just a...' in this case, it's 'just a boat' but an object is never 'just a (insert object)' as everything has photographic potential. 

The boat in the above shot is old, has character and sat within the landscape, it has context and even a story about it. The top line of the boat guides the eye, sweeping it along the boat as well as the lovely hills and water in the background. Throw on a vintage filter on top of the image, as we did in Snapseed, and you've got an image that tells a story of yesteryear, installing a little nostalgia into the image. 

Becuase we had a zoom in our hands we were also able to focus in on detail, include more of the landscape and, generally, just experiment with framing so actually, we were able to capture multiple images to add to our collection, too.
