August 2015 Image of the Month: Lobster Buoys

Lobster Buoys

08.15 Lobster Trap Buoys, Pemaquid, Maine

On an overcast day without much contrast, these Lobster trap buoys, articulated by their florescent paint, seemed to glow in the flat light. As I moved around the assembly of traps and buoys, this view at the corner with buoys aimed in opposing directions provided a dynamic composition. This photo, printed on canvas at 30” x 60”, is on exhibit in the lobby of R. M. Davis Inc., 24 City Center in Portland, Maine, until September 21, 2015.
