Fishermen

I realized when I looked at the photos I took as we watched two fishing boats being unloaded at Pukenui, I seem to have been more fascinated with the fishermen than with the boats or what they had caught.

It seemed to me that the men on the mussel boat were more organised and worked more like a well oiled machine than the crew on the other boat.  


When he wasn't busy he was keeping an eye on proceedings:

  2. Being as fishing is the most dangerous job in the world...it is good that they are focused and organized. Good shots.

  3. So focused on their work - as they need to be. I like to go down to the fishing wharves too - always lots to see and snap.

  5. I hadn't thought of it that way but, yes, the mussel boat men were much more purposeful than the small boat and they had a lot more to unload as well. It's true though that I concentrated on the what and you concentrated on the who at the wharf.
