July 17, 2012 Gone Fishing!
July 17, 2012 - My favorite time on the Provincetown Harbor is sunrise! Always beautiful, every time different. Today I came to photograph fishing boat getting ready go to sea.
Glutton is a dragger - a fishing boat that uses a trawl net or dragnet to catch fish. Capt. Beau Tasha and one of his crewman just starting their day of scalloping.
Getting ice to the boat
Thank you for sweet smile!
Down to the boat!
Power cords up
This chain currtain will be dragged on the sea floor
More rope housekeeping
... and more work. Shortly there will be a break -- captain needs to drive someone home and will be back in 1/2 hour...
I also have break from dragger... what a nice surprise! My friend Paul is biking on the pier!
There is this incredible guy in Ptown: Juliusz Popko! He puts those flags up... and there is always Polish flag! Julek, dziekuje bardzo!
My "grandmothers" golden in sunrise
Another boat going to sea for lobsters
Just nice picture, don't you think so?
Back to the boat! Captain is coming back, time to go get some scallops!
Motor on, anchor up, moving out of the pier...
The darker line on the horizon is the breakwater - the stone wall which protects our harbor in stormy weather.
Leaving Harbor... Good luck! Safe scalloping! Come back happy!
