Days Gone By

Walking down by the Bryggen the other day taking some shots of the Bergen Food Festival I noticed a two-masted wooden boat lying tied up amongst all the gleaming white fibreglass, plastic and chrome of its more modern counterparts.  It stood out like a sore thumb, and not in a bad way, against the uniformity of the modern craft surrounding it, like a memory of days gone by…

  1. Love the way you have photographed the boats.
    Very personal and you have managed to photograph them as individuals.
    And of course I love it in this beautiful b&w – and I must say, I love the Captain.

    Cheers!

    1. Thank you very much Tootle. They’re all shot in colour and when I see them full size on the computer I can decide how to edit them and/or convert to B&W 😀
