For coastal dwellers, buoys are common harbor sights. Removed from their briny context, they are simultaneously familiar and foreign. Like icebergs, their mass is hidden below the surface and, removed from water, their awkward disposition on land reveals true size and history of their deployment. Rust, mollusks, oil, and bumps in the night lend character to these colorful giants.
