Docks. Structures extending along or out from the shore into a body of water, to which boats may be moored. Connecting the land and water and our connection to countless memories. The dock has always marked the beginning and end to nautical adventures, lazy afternoons lounging in the sun, warm evenings with family and friends.
This connection was not lost on James Row, who recently salvaged the lumber from a high-water damaged dock in Bobcaygeon. This aspiring photographer took the remains of the old dock – along with the connection to the memories embedded within and crafted a simple frame. The wood that was once was the platform for which memories were created, is now charged with preserving the images of these memories in the form of a photo frame.
These frames are strictly limited edition. James estimates there could be enough lumber remaining for as few as 50 of these frames. The prototype fits an 11″ x 14″ matte with an opening for a standard 8″ x 10″ print. Spitting Images can print your pictures on a range of photo paper, fine art paper or 3 different canvas materials. If you’re interested in purchasing one of these frames, they’ll soon be available in the studio – or contact James personally through his Facebook Page – J Row Photography. While you’re visiting his page, be sure to check out some of his work.
