These two fellows, who were fishing on Jackson Creek near the Deltaville Maritime Museum, capture the essence of what I call “Rivah Culture”. Casual garb, sunshades, hats, fishing, boat and a lazy afternoon. They had it all. I’m sure there were more than a few beers in the cooler.

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
