The world as I see it — by R C Norman


Lone Waterman

Lone Waterman

I admire those who make a living on the water, like this lone waterman who awoke before dawn to prepare for his day’s work harvesting crabs on the Rappahannock River. I snapped this shot just after he left his small dock navigating out Broad Creek, hopeful for a good day’s catch. Deltaville, Virginia. May 28, 2011

  1. Thanks. Looks like we are kindred spirits when it comes to the Chesapeake Bay. I love spending my summers on the water and have a tremendous respect for those who take to boats, nets, lines and pots to harvest its bounty. I hope the crabbing is as good this year as it was last. For me, there’s nothing better than steamed crabs with Old Bay and a cold beer. Thanks for the follow.

  2. I too admire the watermen! I watch them every morning before sunrise, heading out for the day’s catch. They’ve already started crabbing out in front of our place in Marshy Creek, Grasonville, MD. Chesapeake Bay blue crabs are the bestest! 🙂 I’m looking forward to your photography work.
