Picture the Creek exhibition of Faversham Creek photos this weekend

Picture the Creek exhibition

Photos of the local creek by Faversham residents will be on show at the Faversham Creek Trust’s Purifier Building from 11am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

From what I can see, it’s an interesting, often quirky collection, and all the better for it. For details – and to catch a glimpse of some of the photos  – see the Picture the Creek website.

I have to say that I think this is a cracking idea, and I hope lots of people take the opportunity to go and see the show. My only regret is that non-residents were not allowed to enter – so you won’t find any photos of this regular creek user.

My brother Matt Atkin has sent over another collection of his remarkable photos from the Far East, this time depicting traditionally built wooden craft and fishing folk on the coast of Vietnam, close to the ancient city of Hoi An, which is itself not far from Da Nang.

Matt points out that the eyes on some of the craft are a traditional feature, and that their job is to help a boat ‘see’ fish.

As usual, click on the images for a much larger shot – and as always, these photos remain the photographer’s copyright. Thanks Matt!

Brian Pearson’s photos of the latest Boat Building Academy student launch

  

  

  

 

Brian Pearson has sent over some of his photos of the Boat Building Academy’s student launch day on 7th December. Thanks Brian!

He seems to have had a good time: ‘It was a very joyful occasion, so thanks for the heads-up.’ He added that his party voted the Gartside-designed Skylark their boat of the day, though njo doubt others will have their own favourites.
