The most beautiful weather of the summer ensured a huge turnout for the mediaeval festival held beside the harbour. All the old skills and memories were displayed in stalls and performances that engaged this photographer. A day to remember and only the camera can remember the details and overview, the colours and the movements, the intimacies and the joustings, the artistry and the craft. There has never been a better smoking or a baking or a steaming then there was in Wismar that day!!
And I bet there was also no better eye to record it! Excellent shot.
I had the lens almost in the oven, Marilyn.
I am pleased that you create similar images, and have enjoyed browsing my collection. It is good to connect with your appreciative spirit.
There is many a Dutchman whose mouth will be watering at the sight of this Ian, although they may prefer their herring soaked in vinegar. The photo reminds me of our visit to the old sardine factory, now a museum, in Stavanger, where they used the same methods of smoking as you have shown here with this very artistic photo. The smell was overpowering, but the sardines tasted lovely :))
What a joy to be touring Europe again, with you as a companion, Amelia. In all the lands around the North Sea and the Baltic it seems that the smell of herring smoking makes people salivate. I loved exploring Yarmouth, Aberdeen, Rostok, Wismar and Rotterdam and I am sure that I would love to do the same in Stavanger - for your imagery has invited and convinced me that one day I will.
Very nice foto from fish! Teca sa Dunava - Serbia!
Thank you, Teca sa Dunava. Welcome to my gallery, too. Warm regards from Sydney, AUS.
Lovely shot. Friendly greetings from Athens.
Thanks Christos. I thought maybe I was a bit intrusive point the camera into the oven, but it was one of those glimpses that one never wants to forget. I can smell it still.
Thanks Marie. You can taste the smoke on your palate, I'm sure!
