Anchored Down

Photo taken by contributor PJ Brez, a 28-year-old man who lives in the South Korean countryside. He has experienced depression, loneliness, homesickness, and feelings of isolation. He teaches English conversation at a university in Korea, but photography is his passion.

About this photo: “This photograph was shot with the super rare Kodak Aerochrome color infrared film. I found this old boat washed up in a baked dry tide pool, no water in sight. I found the whole image somewhat sad and definitely ironic since the boat was still anchored down despite there being no chance of it floating away. It reminded me of how stubborn and set in my ways and cyclical patterns I can, at times, be.

  1. Wow… sometimes I feel this way with my husband. My point makes no sense, and I know am I wrong, but I stick to my guns anyway… I do the same thing.


  2. I like the vintage feel. Stubbornness can be a good thing if it means you are unwilling to compromise your values. When it gets bad is if pride is involved. Having Asperger’s, it often involves a defense mechanism to change. The red tint is one in which could be interpreted as seeing the world as a threatening and uncompromising place. The boat and anchor could mean that you are unwilling to give into it. Great photo. Made me think.


  3. Great shot and reminder of my my own time of living out of US. l have Bipolar and feel photo represents the aftermath that has been left of my life after this disease reared its head. THanks for sharing; keep them coming.
