Joan Rankin - Peggy's Cove

I went because my sister and family lived in Halifax and I want down to visit them.  And my brother-in-law had a small boat that we puttered around in…he loved it, and my sister didn’t like going out in it at all, she didn’t like the ocean.  But I loved going out along the shore and seeing the landscape from the water.  And of course there was a lot of rock involved in that.  But we went to Peggy's Cove.  I think we drove when we went to Peggy's Cove, but I can’t recall exactly because I think my sister was there as well, because I think she was the one that kept telling me to stay back from the edge all the time because I wanted to get too close.  When I’m photographing, I try to get the angle I want.  But I’m always interested in texture and line and shadows, and of course that was the most beautiful rock I had seen at Peggy's Cove.  And so what I did was, with my camera, I was composing little compositions, photo-compositions, with the rocks that were there.  And it fascinated me.  I love rocks, and whenever I’d go to the shore, I would always look for interesting rocks or shells, this sort of thing.   And I just found there were beautiful shapes that I wanted to record.
