Fisherman, Petty Harbour

Fisherman, Petty Harbour

In 1982, I visited Petty Harbour and photographed this man "gutting" cod.  Little did I realize that the cod fishery would soon be closed for 30 years.

A photo is a "Slice of Time" and this one shows 1/60th of a second in the history of Petty Harbour and this man.  He wasn't aware that I was taking his photo, though he was aware of me taking pictures.  This photo was taken nearly 40 years ago and serves as photo record of that moment in time.

Happy New Year!

Feel free to share with family and friends.
