POINT BLANK: PETROPAVLOVSK KAMSCHATSKI

Kamchatka / Russia.

East…  ..very far east…  …57°North / 160°East…  …only 20° to the international date line. A eight hour domestic flight inside Russia. Eight hours time difference to Moscow time…  ..but still inside Russia.

Fishing, gold mining , wild bears, volcanoes…   …a trip that makes you feel far away…  ..in distance and time. Priceless.


POINT BLANK: FISHING VILLAGE / COLLECTING SEASHELLS

“It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbledstreets silent and the hunched courters’-and-rabbits’ wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.”

(Dylan Thomas, Under Milk Wood)

 


POINT BLANK: FISHING

“I wish I was a fisherman, tumblin’ on the seas
Far away from dry land, and its bitter memories…

…with light in my head, you in my arms, woo”

(Fishermen’s Blues, THE WATERBOYS)   …try this while watching this gallery

 


POINT BLANK: ICE FISHING

Calm, balanced and a bit taciturn was the first approach with the ice fishermen. But after a brief chat about technique, wheater and the right fishing lures the ‘ice’ had melted. They let me do my shots to capture the peace and serenity of this hobby. But I think that ‘hobby’ is is not the right term. Some concider it as sports. Some as hunting…  …and for some is it a complementary livelihood. This images I took in late February at the frozen river Volga in the city of Tver/Russia.
