Regular price $25.00 CAD

Select Dimensions

In the quiet embrace of British Columbia's inner passage, I stumbled upon a scene that whispered stories of yesteryears—a solitary abandoned boathouse in ruins, its timbers weathered by the salt and storms of many seasons. This photograph captures the stark beauty of abandonment, where nature slowly reclaims what was once hers. The boathouse, with its faded wood and moss-covered roof, is a testament to the relentless passage of time. The calm waters around it mirror the sky, blurring the line between the heavens and the earth in a serene symphony of blues and grays.

Architecturally, the structure is simple, yet its placement within the landscape speaks volumes about the human footprint in remote places. There's a melancholy beauty in how it leans slightly, as if bowing gracefully to the inevitability of its fate. As I framed this scene through my lens, I was struck by the contrast between the permanence of the boathouse's purpose and the transient nature of its existence. It's a place that has seen better days, yet in its decline, it offers a profound beauty—a reminder of our impermanence.

Around this forgotten edifice, the lushness of British Columbia's natural landscape flourishes, feral and wild, encroaching upon the manufactured with each passing season. The British Columbia, Canada air here is thick with the scent of pine and the sea, a backdrop that adds a sensory depth to the visual story. This photograph is an invitation to ponder, to reflect on the cycles of life and decay, and to find beauty in the places where nature and human history intersect.
