Bo’s – Key West
Photographic Story Buddy Owen started his fish market out of a little wagon more than 25 years ago and now both he and his restaurant, Bo’s Fish Wagon, is something of a local legend. True, the place looks like it’s been hit by a few hurricanes – it has – but Bo picks up the pieces and nails it back together. To me the place is representative of the laid back reputation of Key West, which is getting harder to find as “new” moves onto the island. Bo’s is located on the corner of Caroline & Williams St., a prime location near the historic waterfront. I worry that someday he will want to retire, will sell the land and Bo’s will be replaced by “new”. I fear this landmark will disappear, thus the need for me to photograph the place before that happens. By the way Bo’s fish sandwich is fantastic! The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Photographed with a Sony digital camera and instead of oil painting with Q-tips and cotton balls, Niki was able to paint using Photoshop. Changing from the old-fashioned way of doing her art, to the new ‘fashion’ of using technology was challenging, but she’s enjoying getting back to her own personal expression. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
