We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

Mending the nets is a rather tedious task for the fishermen, but a key part of the evening preparations for the next morning’s outing… Just as a carpenter needs to sharpen his chisels, the fisherman’s nets are his tools.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Ooh lovely compostion, great the way it angles across the frame and love the way the image is dominated by two or three colours.

  • Thank you, great compliments! :-)
