Well, half a century broken. A kind of milestone I suppose. As long as I keep telling myself stuff like that I might actually get through this project. I was out in Skerries harbour for some food again today. This time with my wife’s parents, my brother in-law and his wife. Once again the food was excellent and thats all I’m saying on that score, just in case you think you’re reading food blog!
Todays weather was pretty miserable in comparison to the almost summer weather we had yesterday. So I thought a black and white shot of the harbour area would be a good idea for day 51. I walked right along the harbour taking shots from various angles and of various bits and pieces such as nets, buoys and other tell-tale signs of fishing activity. As I was making my return journey, I noticed that the fishing nets in todays shot made a really nice leading line back towards the pubs and restaurants. The sky had also got a lot darker and it looked like a storm was going to hit inland. This shot cried out to be taken in portrait orientation because of the way the nets lead the viewers eye from the bottom of the frame to the top. This meant I had no choice but to crop off some of the fishing vessel on the right side of the frame. Its not too bad I suppose, at least it gives the viewer a sense of whats out there on the right hand side.
