Matthew Atkin photographs the boats of Mumbai

Mumbai 27

My photographing brother Matthew Atkin has been excercising 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.

Matthew Atkin’s photos of the boats of Cheng Chau, Hong Kong, October 2014

Here’s another collection of my brother Matthew Atkin’s photographs, this time from Cheng Chau, a dumb-bell shaped island 10km to the south west of Hong Kong Island. Thanks Matt!

Hollowshore, late October 2014

Some photos marking the end of the 2014 cruising season. The dreamy boat is Simon Harding’s Cygnet of London. I gather she was guilt in 1906 by the Burgoine brothers of Kingston on Thames to a design by her first owner, a G Chalmers.

I have some shots of her sailing over the weekend when I can find my mislaid camera…

PS – I’ve now found my camera (I left it on the boat!) and added my shots of Cygnet of London under sail, and a few of local wildlife for good measure.
