Green Paint and Orange Dirt

Vernon Bridge Wharf under wraps

In Vernon Bridge there is a small shellfishery off a small wharf.  The wharf  is lifted out every winter and put back every spring. Over the winter, the deck of the wharf is stored on a bit of land which juts out to the left of where the wharf is in the next picture.

For some reason, this winter the wharf is draped in heavy plastic splashed with vivid green paint. The orange is from rust on the wharf and from PEI soil, which is red/orange, from the iron oxide in the soil.

I hope you enjoy these vibrant abstracts – which also include (dead) mussels and other small (dead) sea creatures – as much as I enjoyed photographing them.
