Mr Albert

Mr Albert wp I don’t know Mr Albert, wish I did though. Or maybe just the crew. Twenty seven years ago while vacationing in Florida I took this photograph as I walked down a dock full of working boats. It looked like Mr Albert had seen better days but it was hanging on, it was a net boat and in that area it’s catches most likely consisted of shrimp and mullet.

I shot this trying to capture the textures of the wood, flaking paint and the shadows of the setting sun. I guess I was also hoping to capture the adventurous spirit of the old time sea fisherman and perhaps just a bit of the decaying mom & pop industry now largely replaced by modern commercial fleets.

I began my photography career in high school, 39 years later it's still what defines me more than anything else. I've had other jobs and many hobbies but just never was able to stay away from behind the lens.
