The Man and the Fish

Posted by | Photography | No Comments

Yesterday morning I stepped onto the deck into wind, temperatures in the high 30s, and a mist that swept across the river. The morning was silent and this man fished without taking notice of the cold. “I’ve caught nothing,” he told me, shrugging, as I watched him, “but it’s okay.” He reeled in a line to freshly bait the hook, mumbled something to himself, and sent it out again, hoping. The bell on a nearby pole jingling faintly in the wind.
