Looking at life through the lens

Ghost Shipyard

My house is located right near a river (or “Kill” as it is called here) and at one time, the area was a thriving shipyard. Many ships would come here for repair. It is now abandoned, but the decaying hulks of its last projects remain.

    • Thanks Tracey. I always knew that this was going to be a black and white shoot (though I hope you had a chance to look at the color shots as well). But just changing them to grayscale wasn’t enough, I added the grain and vignetting in Photoshop to give it a bit of a vintage look.
