Fog Is The Character Of The Waterfront. Photography And Text By Keith R Wahl

The spirit of the waterfront is not always sunshine. The sun is welcome when it appears, but those who work the waterfront and fish prepare for something else. They prepare for wind, fog, rain, and cloudiness.
This is why classic marine artists became "classic". They did not focus on the days that were bright with sunshine but welcomed those days when they appeared. They understood that the waterfront and marine environment were an amalgam of conditions. Sometimes, the brightness of the sun and the settling dark appear in the fog.
Moreover, the combinations of weather conditions are the conditions of the waterfront. This is what people work in. These are reality. And the idea that people on the waterfront overcome these conditions say so much about them. When I photograph in fog, it is an homage to the character of these people.
