Old Boat by Originalbossman Old Boat by Originalbossman
This old boat is sitting on the edge of Lake Michigan. It is basically getting ready to be dismantled and recycled based on the torches that were near the bow. I finally got a chance to shoot a long exposure of this ship. Luckily you cant see the pigeons that kept flying in and out. Processed to give it the gritty look it deserves. Black and White is the only way to adequately display this old fire boat from Chicago.

I promise it looks better for some reason at the link where the print is available.

Edit: Resized for web, should fix color errors and sharpness.

Oh my gosh! That's so awesome!

I found an old boat like this too! Except it's nowhere near water. It's near Brach's on the Westside. O.O

Thank you. This one is sitting on land as well. You should take a picture of it.

I will! I'm done with school for this semester, so I'll make it my photography assignment from you! : D

I'm not very good yet, as I've only been shooting for three months so far, but I can't seem to stop finding things to photograph!

I can't believe it, but someone sidled on over to that boat right after I said I'd take a picture of it and they loaded it up on their truck and drove off. :raincloud:

Shoot in color then convert. I used photoshop but you can just as easily use GIMP. Glad you like it.

I find something very fantastic and ironic about a fire BOAT. What good does that do?

Who would ever want to dismantle that boat! I would love to restore that to it's former glory! Other than that, brilliant photograph!

It will probably never get dismantled. The owner is not in any hurry to clean up his section of the harbor.

This is a compelling photograph. I love the light that seems to be illuminating it...it gives an effect of wisdom and beauty and importance, almost as if the ship is being sainted.

I guess i got lucky with the harsh light and the 11 stops worth of exposure time. Glad you like it.
