Abandoned - Ganges Harbour and Bourgoyne Bay, Saltspring Island, Canada

These images present a mystery I find absorbing. The history of how this boat and this car came to be in these places, at this time - the journey "from then, until now". There is beauty in the patina of age through the marine growth on the boat hull and the rust on the car. The sense of sadness over the abandonment of these aging beauties is pervasive. I really want to know their stories. Taking these photo images helps preserve these relics - a good thing as the boat has disappeared. The car is likely to remain as it is in a very secluded spot.
