Building a boat

They do it in the old-fashioned way at "Hardanger fartøyvernsenter"


This is my contribution to Dragonstar's The weekend in Black and White.

Not only an interesting picture - interesting subject in its own right too.

Interesting, layered perspective! Love the how the arcing lines of the boat's hull become so artistic!

Carver said...

Great shot. I like the way the structure is so well photographed.

Birgitta said...

Ja, dette var både et interessant bilde og emne.
Selv har vi en fembøring som er bygd på den gamle måten.

Flott balanse i bildet. Her får du fram både dybde og symetri. B/W valget ditt er helt riktig til dette bildet!!

Flott bilde av ein nydeleg båt! Ingenting er så flott som ein trebåt:)Bildet gjorde seg godt i s\k. Ha ei flott helg!

Dimple said...

Very interesting shot. It isn't often one can see the inside of the hull this way. It works very well in black & white, also.

EG Wow said...

This does look like the hard way!

Dragonstar said...

So much skill involved in making boats this way - and so much skill in producing a photo like this! I like this very much.

Kitty said...

Very Viking :)

Johnny Nutcase said...

Annelie said...

What a job, and what a boat!
Stunning!

raf said...

A fine rendering on this, Rune. Imparts that classic charm of traditonal boatbuilding as well.

Woody said...

The 'old fashioned way' leaves an interesting pattern of lines and dots, enhanced by the monochromatic effect.

Træskibe og både er så flotte i sort/hvid, dejligt billede...

May be old fashioned but well fashioned.

T. Becque said...

You've got to love a craft like that. Great image!

John said...

The old ways are best; good shot. Wood always works in b&w.

becky at abbeystyle said...

oh, the architecture! so they still build these Viking-style boats?

Leah said...

A great shot. And the boat.. is also lovely. It's good to know that people still make boats like this.. =)

Btw, I also have an entry for BWW. Hope you could drop by. =)

Det är väl härligt när ett fartyg byggs på det gamla sättet. Jag har sett när dom byggde Fregatten Jylland i Danmark och i Göteborg har vi ju Ostindiefararen Götheborg. Snyggt fotat.

Lara said...

almost makes me dizzy! a great perspective & contrast!

Malyss said...

What great texture! I almost can smell the perfume of the wood, when it has just been cut and worked..

Vilket vackert och spännande foto, det har så många linjer och fina former. Passar riktigt bra i svartvitt.
Ha en fin vecka!

Dave said...

a perfect subject for b&w conversion.

Y. Ikeda said...

Another boat is to be launched for the Viking! Love the perspective of this image. Awesome shot!

Ah, Rune, you've done it again. You elevate your subjects into something that makes the eye linger and the mind consider.
