Lobster Fishing

Being a photographer definitely has it's perks. It's a great excuse to get out and experience other peoples lives - what they do and what makes them interesting. It's one of my favourite things about being a photographer. I had the opportunity to go out lobster fishing with my friend George and his nephew Jason for the day. Boy, it's a long day and those men work hard for their money. It was also really nice to be out on the water all day, watching the light and sky change constantly. The water rolled and rocked all day, and I rolled and rocked all night after I got off the boat. It's really odd how you still feel like you're on the boat long after you on land. 

Thanks for a great trip guys!

We were out for quite some time, so I had the opportunity to shoot a bit of video of the process. Yes, I realize that the lyrics of the song don't really go with the video, but I like the sound of it. For those of you who don't know it, Cayouche is like the French Bob Dylan/Cat Stevens... kinda. Just a fun little video. Enjoy!
