Multiples - Thematic Photography

There is a watery connection running through my pictures this week for Carmi's 'multiple' theme.

Multiple boats and masts, and... at Fowey, Cornwall
On the Isles of Scilly my multiples have a maritime connection.

Ship Figureheads at the Valhalla, Maritime Museum in Tresco Abbey Gardens
Nature has multiples too. the first of which you may have seen before.

Ducks on the Clinton River alongside Rochester Park's Paint Creek Trail in Michigan
More bird multiples in Scotland.

Swans and their cygnets
Finally it's the turn of a magic basket.

Basket weave
There is even a water connection with this. Dirty clothes dropped into the magic basket magically reappear clean and bright in wardrobes and drawers after being washed, dried and ironed (where necessary).

For more multiple multiples you need to dash away with a smoothing iron to Carmi's Thematic-photographic-263.

This post just shows what links can be made by lateral thinking, Bob. What a mixture of images yet all clearly reflect the theme.
I think the row of figureheads is my favourite. Were they all from ships wrecked off the Scilly Islands or simply a collection put together from other sources do you know?

Love those figureheads! They look as though they are about to do something!

Ducks and swans lovely, but the basket weave is great!

Your harbor scene is so wonderful. The rolling hills and trees are great as a background to the bay area.

Ann - the figureheads were all from wrecks around the Scillies I understand. I wish I had had a notebook with to record what they were.

I do hope I get to go shooting with you someday, Bob. How you approach a theme - with such a diversely creative and open mind - is remarkable, and I learn from you every time you take on a theme.

The moored boats. Wow.

I found the figureheads fascinating too. Best of the lot IMHOP.

Oh I do remember those figureheads, and they are still as lovely as the first time I saw them. Great harbor scene and guess what, I included some too!

Beautiful and varied collection of multiples!

The stories behind those figureheads could make a nice book.

(Of course, I love the ducks, too!)

The basket weave is quite wonderful and of course I am partial to any type of bird! Thanks.
