Fishing on the quay

Honfleur, France – August 2020.

I was rather amused when I saw these two elderly gentlemen sitting at the end of this quay in Honfleur fishing. Not only fishing among the idle fishing trawlers and trawlermen’s equipment along the quayside but in a area they were sitting, I believe is supposed to be off limits to the general public!

…also think they looked a little old to be trawlermen.

Fathers & Sons

Normandy, France August 2020.

Originally I shot the image for the reflections in the sand. Having processed the picture, not only have I captured the two men and the two little boys, the composition of the image is also most near perfect with the water running out across the sand out to the sea.

I’m pretty certain these are all members of the same family as further up the beach was mother and grandmother, in what was a glorious summers day at Lion sur Mer seafront.

A Quite Spot

A quite spot for carp fishing on the lake fed by the River Len at Mote Park, Maidstone, England. I have been trying out some Ilford HP5 which I had rated at 800 ISO and although I’ve use this film in the past, I had never pushed this film in bright light before and so far I am very happy with the results and somewhat cheaper than Tri-X.
