Aquaforte











Aquaforte

In 2006, Aquaforte had its lowest population in over 100 years - 103. When today's photos were taken in August of 2002 the small fish plant was still open there were around 30 more people. I am not sure how many live there today.

Like many rural communities affected by the closure of the cod fishery some boats and fishing stages have been neglected and have fallen into a state of disrepair. The boat in the second last photo tells a story common in many communities - hauled up on the shore, overturned and rotting away, I've photographed this type of scene all over our province in the past 10-15 years and may be a subject for a future Photo of the Day.

Photos of the Day are for sale as stock photographs
and photographic enlargements.
They can also be purchased as slide shows
