Dory



Dory Buff

Buttering the silent water
Bobbing slowly into winter
Buffed curves of poignancy
Burnishing our sweet autumn.


Dory Buff is a colour all to itself out here in Newfoundland. The unusual colour is sometimes seen on houses but it's used mainly on these wonderful dories.

I was taken by the surreal nature of this landscape shot right across the water from where I live.

Lucky me. Yes, I know.

  6. You do know how to touch a person's heart, even one who lives very far away from all of that.

  8. Am I allowed to envy you the view? I love the colour of the little boat. Custard yellow has become very popular for houses in rural Ireland, it is so much softer than the whitewashed plaster.

  10. It's a very striking colour. The boat stands out immediately even with that glorious landscape behind it.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
