One Sunday morning during February of 2016 Deb and traveled to Apalachicola, Florida to visit and photograph all things of interest. While there we came across this scene, which is a marina "parking lot" if you will. The main interest to me was the old covered slip that was in disrepair and looked to be on its last leg as the tin roof was covered with rust and much of it has already fallen into the water. However, just beyond that was a pier with many other boat slips with boats anchored in them and they appeared to be in great condition. Therefore, we decided to title this work after the older slip with the rusted roof.
Once I had a copy of the original image on my (Bill) computer's "operating table" I couldn't help myself so I went about seeing what I could do with it with the digital paint brushes, etc.
What you see is only one of the outcomes I came up with. I'm thinking this is a type of digital abstract painting, which is why I added that part to the title. Many of you may have never heard of Apalachicola, Florida but this small oyster producing town has an interesting history. Please continue to read.
Apalachicola ('æpʰəlætʃ,koʊl) is a city in Franklin County, Florida, United States, on the shore of Apalachicola Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico. The population was 2,231 at the 2010 census. Apalachicola is the county seat of Franklin County.
"Apalachicola" comes from the Apalachicola tribe and is a combination of the Hitchiti words apalahchi, meaning "on the other side", and okli, meaning "people". In original reference to the settlement and the subgroup within the Seminole tribe, it probably meant "people on the other side of the river". Many inhabitants of Apalachicola have said their name means "land of the friendly people".
Before the development of railways in the Gulf states, Apalachicola was the third busiest port on the Gulf of Mexico (behind New Orleans and Mobile). The AN Railway, formerly the Apalachicola Northern Railroad, serves the city. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, the sponge trade, led by Greek immigrants, was a major industry in town.
Apalachicola is still the home port for a variety of seafood workers, including oyster harvesters and shrimpers. More than 90% of Florida's oyster production is harvested from Apalachicola Bay. Every year the town hosts the Florida Seafood Festival. The bay is well protected by St. Vincent Island, Flag Island, Sand Island, St. George Island, and Cape St. George Island.
