Sublime and Beautiful Sunday Buoys will be buoys

Sublime and Beautiful Sunday

This post is for #SublimeSunday is inspired by @c0ff33a and #BeautifulSunday is initiated by @ace108.

I have taken many photos down by the port and docks of the various commercial fishing boats, even though I haven't been out on boats much myself I do enjoy walking around there in the early morning when its often very quiet other than seagulls flying over head and the occasional fisherman/woman ( Dont you hate having to think what is the politically correct way to say things sometime, now I do not want to be sexist saying fishermen as I know there are many fisherwomen as well so perhaps from here on it I will say fisherpeople) working loading or unloading the boats, but I try to mix up what I get shots of looking for beauty as I see it in all kinds of things on my walks, which led to this post where I am focusing on the Buoys on various ships

Now I think these are called Buoys round flotation thingies

now I know one definition of a Bouy is floating object anchored at a definite location to guide or warn mariners,

But I believe and feel free to correct me if I am wrong, they are also the round floaty thingies I am sharing shots of in this post, in the first couple of shots there used when fisherpeople drop traps into the water and the buoys float at the surface above them so the traps can be found and recovered

Now this next one I am not sure if it is dropped into the water to mark something of hands off the side of the boat when they dock so they do not damage the boat bumping against the pier or other boats

Some of these shots are not as crisp or clear as I would like due to it being early morning and not that bright, and secondly the water was a bit choppy and hence the boats were moving

The title for this post is a spin on the saying Boys will be boys
Which is used to express the view that mischievous or childish behavior is typical of boys or young men and should not cause surprise when it occurs.

I guess in some circles thats a sexist saying these days as well and perhaps rightly so I know some girls can be as mischievous or childish as boys

These pictures @tattoodjay that you have here are good shots as they even help tell your story much better. Photography, especially,with a phone is one thing I love, but my desire has been hampered cos my phone's camera isn't quite okay so for now I just come to this community to see beautiful pictures shot to fill myself 😁

Dont you hate having to think what is the politically correct way to say things sometime, now I do not want to be sexist saying fishermen as I know there are many fisherwomen as well so perhaps from here on it I will say fisherpeople) working loading or unloading the boats

I usually do not think about "political correctness". I am not a native English person, but I think that saying that saying "fishermen is sexist" is a huge exaggeration. This has nothing to do with sexism. I have not heard anyone saying the fisherwomen word/phrase/term, but everyone knows that both men and women are fishing. I would not think that any woman would be offended by hearing someone addressing them as fishermen. Maybe this is just/only me, and the world is indeed becoming/became too sensitive/oversensitive.

I think your the way it should be some words have been around for generations and there shouldn’t be any problem with using them

I am in love with that last photo. The reflection of those boats and their poles along with the blue color are amazing. I also love the light reflection too.
Great photos all together.
