October 24, 2014 Another foggy day........
The old dock is falling into disrepair right along, these days. It has served the community well since way back in the days the America brought people and goods here. The deep sea fishing boats used to go in and out from here taking people trout fishing back when Hovland was the Lake Trout Capital. My dad was, in fact, one of the deep sea captains that did this. There is a lot of history around that old dock. One of the fish houses near the dock has some of the old fishing boats on the property by the dock. It also has a net rack and nets, floats and such. The day seemed right for a photo of what used to be in our community. That brings me to this picture. I was knowing, sort of, what I wanted. However, I wasn't getting it. I had this in color....post light, post dark....just wasn't doing it. I finally decided to put it up to a Photography Group I am a part of. There are a lot of fine people in the group and I respect the opinions of others in it. So, after one suggested maybe black and white.....I tried that. It still didn't quite do it. But, I tried sepia.....and you know what, that worked!
Sometimes, it is just kind of interesting to remember all the things that have taken place around something so simple as an old dock.
