Back in photography

 The pandemic has eased down here, and things are slowly coming into the Tao groove again. 

A few frames for the blog, which is not forgotten.

Thanks for looking! Autocord all, except the last one, taken with old trusty Nikon F. FP4+ in Beutler, as usual.

It feels good to post again.

The harbor of Punta del Este in the low season

I do not go much to Punta del Este, but sometimes I am happy to take a friend to visit. The harbor is a mandatory stop, especially the fishing boats areas,



Fishing goes on all the year round, if weather allows. Some boats look sad, as if they have been put to float while their owners decide what to do with them.


A couple of old girls were chatting and enjoying the view.


The seagulls are always ready to pick up the discards from fish cleaning. They have learned to keep their position in order,


When the food comes out, it is a riot!


Thanks for looking!   Minolta Autocord, TMX 100 in Beutler.

Fishermen

I caught a number of fishermen that were getting their little boats into Buceo harbor, at about noon on Sunday.


The men were busy mooring, unloading their catch and getting the boats ready. A storm was forecasted for next morning.



Many boats had brought fish.




These men are some of the last artisans left in their trade. I hope that the large fleets that get in the River Plate leave enough fish for them.
