Derelict Boat, Coopers Cove Sooke, BC 2008

I was at Coopers Cove last week. The derelict boat in long gone although, for now at least, the former naval ship seen in the background is still anchored in the cove. It’s a reminder how photographs, while they must stand on their own as visual images, also serve as historical records, a document of time passing. This was one of the first group of images I took that have become part of the Salt Water & Rain project, photographs of Vancouver Island and coastal British Columbia. A photographic archive of British Columbia and one of a series of inter-linked projects on the Pacific Northwest.
