Matthew Atkin photographs the boats of Mumbai

My photographing brother Matthew Atkin has been exercising his camera around the harbours of Mumbai again. I hope you enjoy the shots.

Naturally, the dried fish are Bombay duck, a local fish that is usually dried and salted to preserve it, and is then fried for eating as an appetizer before a meal. Strangely, it apparently has a powerful smell but little taste…

Thanks for the photos Matt! For more of my brother’s excellent and exotic photos, click here.

More favourite local boats seen while sailing the Swale

Some more favourite local boats seen around the Swale – and mostly photographed using one hand! As usual, click on the small image for a much larger view.

The little white-hulled boat from Paglesham is just the cutest thing, isn’t she?

Wonderful old photos from the Museum of Ireland Flickr

These fabulous historical shots come from the National Library of Ireland on The Commons – a collection that’s well worth a bit of time, and not just for the boat and sea related shots.
