In Menemsha, on Martha’s Vineyard Island, there is a momument to the brave swordfishermen who go far out to sea and fish for these mighty creatures, one harpoon at a time.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
