Brightly colored fishing buoys and other items with vivid hues dot the coastal landscape.  These photos highlight a few collections of such items spied not long ago around Canada’s Atlantic coast.

  1. What a clever collection of tractor seats – I love that they painted them such bright colors and put them out for display. They are a fine example of how pleasing (and sometimes ignored) basic industrial design can be. Nice capture.

    • Dawn, so true — the wide array of styles and colors of these vintage seats and the manner of their display prompts admiration for the creativity in assembling this collection!

  2. These are great! I love how colour is so prevalent in coastal communities, whether it’s east or west, Canada or Scandinavia . . . My theory is it’s to brighten all those foggy days, and lead the fishermen back home.

  3. I am a West Coast girl living in Toronto. I know there is a connection between the East and West. When I saw those Muskoka chairs….I felt that was the picture that brings all of Canada together. We are a simple people, I believe….as in, we find much pleasure in the little things that speak volumes to our souls. Family, nature, love and life. We encompass it all. Thanks for showing that through your photography.
