The Boatman Calls

By Herge88
Hi All,

Another long absence, hey it happens. It will almost certainly happen again. Anyway it was my birthday yesterday and EPZ mailed me an invitation for plus membership for a week, it reminded me of the site so I thought I would take a look around again. It was good to see a lot of my old connections as they are now called are still posting.

My offering today was taken in Dawlish, there was a loneliness about this scene that caught my eye, I wanted to include the seaweed on the rope, and I decided a mono conversion would suit it best. Looking forward to having a look round some more of your images.

I agree to, I didn't think of it at the time, nor did it occur to me at the post processing stage, but it is a good point and worth mentioning.
