Money for old rope

Ship rope

Although we had our amazing dinghy and land expeditions, there was also a lot of time spent on the boat during the Antarctic trip.

When I exhausted the day’s shots of icescapes, I took photographs of the ship’s features, notably the rope, which there was a lot of. It made me think of the saying “money for old rope”.  It has a nautical origin and comes from the days when sailors sold the good, (shorter), undamaged bits of rope when they came ashore.

    1. It’s the photographer in me. Always looking for textures. And it was an interesting shift from taking lots of monochrome shots. Everything in Antarctica is black, white or varying shades in between !
