“Slick Calm…”


“…Morgan Fine on his birddog after a day of mullet fishing. With his pocket net on the net table and fish in the ice box.” Diana

This is a Holga photo I treasure. It was taken just before the net-ban went into effect and put lone fishermen like Morgan out of business, and away from making a living the way their families had practiced for generations. I used Fuji Neopan 400 for this photo and had and have a devil of a time printing it. The negative is very dense with a big light-leak in the upper right hand corner that I can only partially ‘burn–in.’ And on the left hand side it also has these weird light leaks that I think must have happened in the developing tank, but I am not sure.

The silver print version of this is on exhibit at the Arts Center, and for sale in my photo-store.
