Last weekend we were out for a hikelet along the Potomac river and happened upon a woman enjoying the view of the marsh. We got talking and she mentioned, in particular, my Wooden Boat hat. She then revealed that she was a photographer who specialized in classic and traditional boats, and she noted she had been published in the magazine. Her name is Ellen Tynan and, on review, I am sure I have seen her work (also on Flickr).
She is hoping to publish a book in the not-too-distant future: “Boat Lines.” It will compile her photos of traditional boats from six regions of the world: Maori New Zealand, Ireland, Alaska and British Columbia, Peru, Indonesia, and Egypt. Good sampling, there, eh?
I’d suggest browsing through her work and getting a sneak peak at what might be in the book. A quick selection of works that jumped out at us, here at Chine bLog, includes (will open in new tabs/windows):
- Old man in his lovely Egyptian craft
- Canoe and small lateen rigged boat in Egypt
- Outrigger in Indonesia
- Maori canoe carving
- Curragh frame detail
- Galway hooker race
- Tlingit canoe
- Peruvian reed canoe
- Maine pulling boats
There are many more great ones. It would be well worth your time to browse them all on your own. Keep an eye out for this great sounding book.
