Currier at work

Making a living

This might look like a photo from the past, but it actually a photo I shot just a few days ago at the “T” Dock at Cap Sante Boat Haven. The monochrome treatment, plus the familiar features of the commercial fishing boat, gives the “good ol’ days” impression.

December snow
