Building boats

Because it's fun, pressure-free, and serves no purpose, I've been making boat collages every day for the past week.

I just pick out papers, cut some shapes, glue them into a sketch book, shoot them with a cellphone, use whatever app comes to mind, and voila! Here you have my current favorite three.

Why boats? I like boats. I'm a Navy brat. I hang around boatyards, harbors, and marinas photographing all shapes, sizes, and types.

But I do not want to be ON boats. (Unless it's a cruise ship and I'm being served a tropical drink.)

So I'm making imaginary boats with paper. Boats that are not to scale, nor built to sail.

And now I must heave-ho, for I and my matey Chris will be off in a few hours to celebrate 25 years of married life, plus an additional six without (gasp!) benefit of clergy. How he's put up with me for this long boggles my mind.
