Port of Cherbourg

Nautical reflections were especially vibrant as the fishing boats returned shortly after sunrise. Cherbourg is a city and ferry port situated on the Cotentin Peninsula in Lower Normandy in north-western France.

The Buoys and the Lobster Traps

The lobster traps and buoys provide colorful backdrops at the marina; a sensory overload of grit, peeling paint, unidentifiable odors, rust and fluorescent colors!

Senseless-III
It was moored alone, docked and basking in the sunshine on a quiet Sunday afternoon. ‘Senseless’ appeared deserted, so I was able to capture some quick shots of this solitary beauty.
I was conjuring “endless days at sea” stories in my mind and happily loosing myself in the moment.  Without warning, I was startled out of my photographer’s reverie, when a man suddenly emerged from the cabin on the boat. He started shouting obscenities, began thrashing his arms in every direction and marched up and down on the deck of the boat. His unexpected agitation provoked the previously subdued dog, and continuous barking ensued. The tirade continued as he jumped on his bicycle and started down the dock toward me.
I had just enough time to collapse my tripod, dial 911 (just in case), and jump into my car; a conversation and a meeting of the minds, was not going to be the smart thing for me to pursue.
As I drove safely away, I replayed the scene in my mind. Even when you’re not looking for trouble, it sometimes finds you! The whole incident was just ‘Senseless’.
