Newport, Oregon

A trip to Newport to run errands and, since it wasn't raining, a quick detour to spend half an hour among the fishing boats. A lot of what I photograph there consists of paint splatters on the docks, rust patterns, paint dribbles down the sides of boats, etc. All of this is fodder for my photomontages, and elicits a lot of strange looks and humorous remarks from the local fishermen. "You certainly have an unusual hobby," was today's comment. ©Carol Leigh
