The subject matter I find most intersting in photography is items or objects that are naturally 'out of place'. This picture was taken behind an abandoned farmhouse, so old that it was actually slanted a bit on its foundation.The area around the house was well landscaped, groomed, and organized. Among the treasures around the building was this boat. Sitting on piles of hay, in between the barn and house itself. Although it seemed it had no business being there, it was perfectly at home. Makes you wonder who used to take it out and how many summer days it filled with joy for some family. People would probably ask, why not scrap the thing, why leave it out in the middle of a farm ? I think its beautiful, what it represents. Maybe someone just wanted to make sure they were reminded of what it meant to them, or how it made them feel. Objects hold that power, and even though someday this boat will be so rusted, and far gone it will need to be hauled away, it now stands as a monument to someone's memories - even if there is a rabid raccoon calling it home for now.
