This father and daughter team finds driftwood on the beach and fashions it into furniture. They sell their creations at the Saturday craft market on Salt Spring Island close to Vancouver Island.
What a beautiful team! I bet their creations are fantastic! Excellent shot.

@martie: Thanks, Martie. They make really nice things.
Cool team, very creative people use driftwood to produce furniture… I have seen such creations in the islands it’s always a one of a kind piece

@Scotfot: Thanks, Bob. I scanned it from a photo and it turned out grainy. So it's been run through Noise Ninja as well.
A very strong double portrait. Great light and colours. Noticing what you've said above, I fell that you might have gone just a fraction too far with the noise removal on the skin areas, but this is still very good.

@Andrew Gould: Thanks for the reasoned comment. Yes noise removal does tend to remove detail as well.
beautiful people, beautiful image, great shot with the driftwood in the back!

This is a terrific shot! The little girl looks like someone you would see in a magazine ad, beautiful and captivating!

@Steven: I agree. Thanks so much, Steven.
They both have interesting faces and beautiful eyes!It would be interesting to see what he fashions from driftwood. Some creations I saw were amazing.....I couldn't say how much was nature and how much the craftsman's talent!
9 Feb 2008 11:03am
@Japanalia: Thanks, Gabriela. They make lovely stuff, some very simple and natural, some more elaborately finished. Their prices were reasonable but some driftwood furniture I saw at the market cost in the thousands of dollars.
Without any doubt, this is my favourite father/daughter shot...this is to your credit Michael :) If you get a chance to photograph their art, I'd love to see it !

@Lorraine: That's very nice. Thanks so much, Lorraine.
Very good shot! The islands between Vancouver Island and the mainland are one of the places in Canada that are still on my "to do" list, Salt Spring Island has the reputation of being one of the last holdouts of hippies...
9 Feb 2008 12:13pm
@Wolfgang Prigge: Yes, there are hippies there. But the cost of buying, rent and taxes is so high there now, that people such as these craftspeople are being forced out I would think. Thanks, Wolfgang.
Wonderful expressions you have captured here!

@Craiger: Thank you so much, Craiger.
Very expressive faces. Despite all the lines and shapes in the background vying for attention, I'm drawn directly into their eyes. Very nice shot!
@Ron: Thank you, Ron.
The first thing that caught my eyes as the photo loaded was the driftwood in the background. Thanks for the story behind it. The daughter's eyes are captivating.
