Photographer's Note

“Weather beaten” is the name of this photo taken on a walk on waterfront. This rusty water valve on the outside of a deep blue ship provided a stark contrast coupled with added ice, gave a great opportunity for a photograph I couldn’t resist.
As usual it was a very cold of sunny morning, and the bright light helped to deepen the dramatic colors.
The layer of a ship appears to be rugged and weather beaten and a coat of paint wouldn’t go astray in covering the imperfections and wrinkles similar to a person getting a face lift.
Unfortunately fresh paint, or the facelift, would cover these wonderful imperfections and remove the visual history of this old boat, a story well worth telling.
Why would anyone get a face lift and hide the story of an interesting life?
Some people may want to stay young forever.
This photograph was cropped, level adjusted and saved for the web.
