Photographer's Note

“Screeched in” is the name of this photograph. This gentleman from Ireland is going to get his Newfoundland certificate. In order to become a Temporary Newfoundlander you have to be screeched in.
This involves saying a Newfoundland quotation fast, putting your feet in salt water, kissing a COD fish on the lips and finally drinking our famous Jamaican rum straight as this gentleman is doing. It is not for the week of heart!
This photograph was level adjusted, de-saturated except for the bottle and sharpened in lab color U. S. M.80, 1.5,1, and saved for the web.
This ceremony was completed on a whale watching boat in Bay Bulls as the rest of the visitors watched. Fun was had by all!
