All My Mascarete in a Row

photos by Tamás Fehér

Filling the frame in an artful way is sometimes half the game in photography.

Finding something interesting to fill that frame with helps too.

In the above image, Tamás caught a trio of mascarete which had been tied end-to-end in preparation for a towing across the lagoon.

These boats are interesting to look at while being raced against each other.
But they have a more subtle appeal when they're simply rafted up like this.

Do something unusual, like tying them up in a long chain with a guy at the back to steer and fend off - and you've got the makings of a very interesting photograph.

I wonder if that guy wanted to ride the caboose,
or if he was stuck with the job.
