  1. Reblogged this on sydney lancaster: hand & eye and commented:
    After working this summer in Parrsboro with Scott Smallwood on a project that explores the interconnections between the tide, the land, and the human history of the area (which included shipbuilding), these beautiful structures speak volumes to me – about change, and resilience, and different ways of looking at the idea of abundance.

    I am also a total sucker for the ways in which these boat-houses help to retain the many generations of work and relationship to the sea in these coastal places.

    My thanks to eMorphes for ringing this to our collective attention!
