Photographer's Note

It was August 1985 and I was serving as the cultural enrichment lecturer on board the Royal Viking Star, on a journey billed as the “Wine Country Cruise.” The ship left South Hampton, England, and visited a pair of ports on the Atlantic Coast of France. It also visited a pair of Portugese ports, sailed through the Straits of Gibraltar, and visited the ports of Alicante and Barcelona on the Mediterranean Coast of Spain.

With the RV-Sun in port overnight in Alicante, I was able to do an early morning photographic expedition. It was shortly before the fog had lifted completely that I came across the haunting site of the two fishermen. According to my ancient records, I photographed the fisherman with a fixed 135mm focal length lens, mounted on a Nikon-F camera body. The film I used was the highly dependable Kodachrome-64, known for its sharpness, color, and permanence. I scanned the slide for the purpose of posting on TE.
