The Defiance - Redux
Because everything deserves a second chance.
About this creation
The original Defiance was - for lack of a better word - boring, in my opinion. Not a whole lot of detail, substandard use of color, too many unsightly studs, etc, etc. It needed to be rebuilt the moment it was completed. But I put it off. I sat it on my shelf, and every time I looked at it, I thought the same thing: one of these days...

Flash forward a few months. Fresh off a Pirates of the Caribbean high (How did I ring in the new year? By watching all three films in a row, that's how), I cleared my floor, slid off my jacket, rolled up my sleeves, downloaded a few Kevin Smith podcasts off iTunes, and went to work.

This is the result. The Defiance, a pirate vessel sailing out of 17th century Spain.

*Oh, and my camera was being belligerent again, and still wouldn't cooperate even after I smacked it around a few times, so please forgive the grainy quality of some of the pictures.

I give you a ship lost between worlds. Every man on board feels it: something is amiss. The winds have died. The waters are still. The horizon is lost in the endless night. Every passing moment takes them further from the world they know.

What lies ahead they canít say. But they arenít worried. Not yet, at least. Because the problem isnít the journey into the unknown. The problem is the journey back.

Note: that red and black structure is a fine example of my renowned "I don't know; it just looks kinda cool" building style. What is it? I don't know; it just looks kinda cool.
Pirate booty.

The end.






"I told you: I'm just a little lost! I swear!"

The red and black structure must be a scaffolding to hold grape vines. They are part of the mandated architectural style here in Brentwood, CA - or they must be, at least, because they're everywhere. I guess the pirates found a creative way to keep scurvy at bay.

It is a lovely ship. However, I have to say, despite the beauty of the ship, it is the rocks in the water that are my favourite element. Lee.
