Ocean Fisherman


I spotted this lone fisherman by San Francisco's Ocean Beach area. The path leading to the ocean was extremely narrow surrounded by water on both sides. I wandered out as far as I dared.

Fascinating pictures and an even more fascinating blog. I had to go through the whole page reading every word.

Fishing... Never done that, have you?

The curved building to its right looks a little familiar. Did you take a picture of that building before?

No, I didn't, but you may be thinking of this other one (second photo), I published a couple of weeks ago.

I'm assuming the Second Church was the 2nd church built in the city?

Yes, the First Parish was the first church. Dorchester is Boston's largest neighborhood. Lots to see and post about. I will feature that church and other interesting spots/buildings when I revisit it later this year, most likely in the spring.

I noticed 5 lights on the corner stoplight.

Yes. Ain't that something?!

This is a fine photo. I could never have gone out even one step to get it--I'm glad you were able to do it.

And you're so right about Mama's being happy to see Duncan. They enjoyed several hours together on Saturday, him beside her in the chair just like at home. We went back for a little while on Sunday, too. It was really nice for all of us, all things considered.

Fenix: I think I've only gone fishing once in my life when I was a kid. I'm a supermarket fisherwoman. You are correct, I was thinking of Cleary Square. It's rare to see a curved building and thought it was the same one. Thanks for that clarification.

Lynette: Thanks for the compliment. I was just feeling adventurous that day. I understand how Mama feels when she sees Duncan. I feel the same way when I see my Maverick.

I like to fish but I don't think I would like to fish there. It's too spooky looking for me. lol.
I do like the picture tho.

Excellent photo. I like the feel of it. Is it B&W or just muted?

Andrea said...

I would love to be right around there right now. I love the ocean and this is a beautiful view.

As for your comment on my blog, yes, the old buildings are on private property so I just stopped on the side of the road and snapped the picture.

Great shot and great composition. Not the usual view from Ocean Beach. I have been enjoying getting caught up with your blog. Somehow I have gotten way behind . I guess life just gets in the way sometimes.

He seems to have found peace - let us hope that he also found some fish!

Dot: It is a spooky place because the "path" is really the remanents of an old historical building. Thanks for your compliment.

Drew: It was an extremely overcast day so I decided to make it a b&w photo. Thanks for your comment.

Andrea: You must be brave. It's usually quite cold and the waves extremely strong. I'll have more photos of the area in the future.

NYCIndividual: I'm sure you must have been here before. Probably not the most ideal fishing hole.

Lara: Thanks, I, too, like the solitude feeling the photo creates.

Photowannabe: This is by the Cliffhouse, but still part of Ocean Beach. Thanks for reading up some of my old posts. I know how you feel, I've been busy myself.

Runee: The waves were quite strong so I don't know how many fishes stuck around.
