Hello Jim, This is a beautiful old building nicely captured with a really nice atmosphere to it with the fishing boats in the foreground and all the fishing gear stacked above. A kind of homely feel for me as I am originally from the fishing town of Halfmoon Bay, Stewart Island, New Zealand. I would love to come to Whitby and meet some of the "Ancient Mariners".
Best wishes from Sumbawa, Indonesia, John
Welcome John , I enjoyed your excellent feedback. You will know well the sights and sounds (and smells) of a busy fishing port. Unfortunately, fishing is in decline here due to over-fishing. Modern methods, powerful trawlers bristleing with all the latest navionics, plus 3D SONAR have given the Skippers a massive advantage over the fish. Much of the catch is discarded, dead, in the hope of catching bigger and more valuable fish. No wonder there is a problem.
I am sure that you would be amongst good company here John, there are many good old yarn spinners just waiting to 'catch' their next listener. ;)
Best wishes to you.
British I could be accused for show-boating my town...;>))
You wont see many photos like this in the brochures!! You might even see a few of these ;>)
