Fuel continues to leak from USS Arizona’s wreckage. I saw this when I visited in February 2020. This iridescent sheen, no more than12 inches long, appeared just long enough for me to squeeze off a few shots. In less than 5 seconds it was gone. The nebulous blob, sometimes called tears of the Arizona or black tears, seems to float just above the water’s surface. It is an eerie reminder of the things still trapped in the wreckage below.

I was fascinated by the port activities in Saint John, New Brunswick. Admittedly, I love almost anything related to salt water but to me areas where freight and cargo are moved from ship to shore and vice versa always seem more industrial than coastal. But, I did spend some time surveying the “landscape” of the port area and found there were many little scenes with spots of bright color or juxtaposition of elements that I felt might make for interesting photo compositions.
Harborside: A Study of Lines depicts one of those scenes. The addition of textures, some dodging and burning, and a few brush strokes take an industrial setting and transforms it into more of an abstract piece by emphasizing the lines in the image.
