The Royal Barge seemed to float on the water. The paddles, wrapped in gold leaf, dipped quietly into the water, pushing the vessel smoothly along its course. On board were Queen Pirouette and her three daughters with an accompanying entourage of ladies in waiting, almoners, confessors, musicians, maids, not to mention the crew. The barge was fairly stuffed with people. God forbid it should capsize!
As you can see, I’ve been having enormous fun with reflections over the past few days. I took these pictures last Thursday, I believe. I’m certain that the venue was the Bay Ridge Community Center. As soon as I can find them, I have a couple/few photographs where I rotated them 180 degrees, and then I cropped out much of the solid part, leaving the reflection looking like the main subject. The photographs below were taken on the banks of Weems Creek.And here it is in sepia…And here it is before the crop and filter effects.How fun was that!
