Wetting a Line by Craig Goldsmith

One of my favourite portraits of my Dad, doing what he loves more then anything else in the world fishing. If he could he’d spend every day fishing, as it is he sometimes wets a line three or four times a day. On this occasion I decided to get up early and document him enjoying his sport. This is the result, it has special sentimental value to me, but I felt like sharing it as something different to what I’ve been posting recently.

    Craig I like the story as much as the image, great take, that light on his arm and the shadow, his profile, awesome take.

    Wonderful shot Craig! Just the sentimental value of this picture alone makes it priceless.

    Thanks for the feedback, and Stuart I’m sure neither myself or my Dad would be offend by the use of Chap, I’m sure he’s been called worse. :)

    Did he catch any fish that day ?

    He has a knack, he catches fish almost every time he goes out, he doesn’t keep many, usually just enough for a nice meal at the end of the day. We were very spoilt growing up, always fresh delicious fish, none of this frozen or store bought junk.

    And yes he did catch fish that day. (BTW off topic but I found this gem playing around with lightroom the first time, I pointed it at a 200GB directory of images, it crashed a few times but in the end I found this amongst the many images).
