Viking Princess at Discovery Marina in Campbell River
As much as I love fishing boats, they can at times be challenging – they are generally close together on docks where I can’t move to a great position, the lighting is nasty, and often they don’t have a visible name.
The name is important to me as I don’t just take pictures of things – I try to capture moments in life and tell a story. Although there is nothing wrong with a nice picture of a pretty boat, “Look – a boat” just does not cut it for me. Nope – the name is important as it is the key to the history of the boat.
In this case I saw a name on a few floats and was able to use it to get the information I wanted.
