Photographer's Note

The harbour at Lagos, Algarve, back in 1968, when there was a thriving fishing fleet.

This is for Kasia, who wants to see old photographs, Gert, who shows the way in posting oldies, and Ana, who happens to be Portugese!

This was originally a colour transparency, but the colours didn't survive the scanning process very successfully, with blocked up shadows being the main problem. The answer seemed to be to abandon the colour altogether, and go with monochrome, which in any case seems to suit the subject pretty well.

Shot on an old Yashica "J" rangefinder camera. I find it hard to believe that on a two-week holiday, I shot just one roll of film back then.
