I feel that I have been a little slow on blogging recently. It is probably a combination of wanting to be outside in the gorgeous weather, in addition to sorting out the water damage insurance claim that has left my studio unusable for far too long.
Todays images are of bull kelp roots. I know it doesn’t sound that fascinating, however they do have an interesting shape and line to them . The bull kelp also show how adaptable nature is as the roots grip firmly to rocks, keeping the kelp firmly planted even in the moving sea.
I actually shot the images as a reference for a drawing I had in mind, but even as black and white photographs the roots are quite interesting. Perhaps they aren’t your “typical” seaside images like star fish and shells, but bull kelp are definitely a natural feature of the shorelines of Pender Island.
