Lobster or Crabs? Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl
Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format - See More Below
Boats come in with lobsters or crabs and then sell their catch to waiting buyers at the dock. There is such a beautiful and delightful simplicity to the concept. It is the farmstand on the waterfront.
There is also excitement. It's the enthusiasm behind picking out your own dinner. It's talking to the fisherman who pulled the traps. It's seeing the boat and the gear. It's hearing the stories about the weather and sea conditions that day. It's knowing where your food has come from and the hands that brought it to you.
Purchasing on the dock brings the public and fisherman part of a shared experience. This creates community. It creates understanding. It creates connection and appreciation.
