Take a series of 10 photographs of any subject of your own choosing. Each photograph must be a unique view of the same subject; in other words, it must contain some ‘new information’ rather than repeat the information of the previous image. Pay attention to the order of the series; if you’re submitting prints, number them on the back. There should be a clear sense of development through the sequence.
This series started as the life and death of fishing boats but after researching the subject it became the resurgence of fishing.
The time of sailing ships is past
New faster automatic vessels upon old ships shadow cast

My fishing boat lies sleeping in the harbor
Anchor weighing heavy on the ocean floor
I still miss all those nights at sea
My fishing boat will sail again no more. ( Part of Me, Vince Suzadail Jr. 2006)
“The phoenix must burn to emerge.”
( Janet Fitch, White Oleander)
Build me straight, O worthy Master! Stanch and strong, a goodly vessel, That shall laugh at all disaster, And with wave and whirlwind wrestle! (from The Building of the Ship (1849. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
Sea of azure waves descend
Golden streams flood through porthole. (Floating Hammock Descends, Stephen Parker

my ship coming in
with its cargo of joy.
Carol Ann Duffy
The quota’s nearly done for me, too many a catch thrown back to sea
The jobs-worth from the ministry, care’s nothing for my misery
Lobster pot and fishing creel, Dover sole and jellied eel
Biting wind and roaring gale, I risk it all when I set sail. (from The Trawlerman, Howard Bull. 2009)
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy,
You shall have a fishy when the boat gets in
You shall have a herring on a little dishy (Trad.)
There’s a steady mist rising,
Down by the sea,
Glowing red in the lamplight,
I see fishermen unloading their catch,
The sea gulls trying to snatch. (from Town by the Sea. Laura Williams, 2015)
