15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Red Oar, I found bright red oar and a boat in the Gowanus Canal at dawn.
This is part of my Gowanus Canal project. the boat was floating untouched in the iridescent sheen of the layer of oil dumped in the Gowns Canal. I thought the row boat suggested romanticism and to see it surrounded by beautiful patterns of toxic chemicals seemed sad and perverse. The smell was almost unbearable.
