    A first attempt in these parts. I was across in Bahrain last weekend and took an early morning opportunity to wander round one of the harbours round the island not long after the dhows had come in from a night's fishing. Anyway, here are some of the results.

    I like the series, especially the first two shots with the crisply detailed boats and the reflections in the water. The face of the man in #4 is really interesting too. Good job Chris!

    Thanks for the thoughts. Looking at them now in a well lit room, they all seem a little pale to my eyes. I was busy processing them late last night with only the light of the monitor and a desk lamp. Funny how they appear so different - of course flickr might have had a say in it somewhere along the line too.

    Of the set here, #4 is my favourite. Both this one and #5 display the slight problem I had all the way round the harbour where the fishermen would stop what they were doing to stand and pose for me. Given the language barriers, it was quite difficult to just get them to carry on what they were doing. I think what surprised me most when I got down the was just how many people there are there. Having passed this location many times on the highway, you'd think that the dhows were virtually abandoned, but it's an absolute hive of industry - the time of day might have had something to do with that though, I was there before 07:00 and they were just about wrapping up at that point.

    Anyway, check out the second set and see what you make of them. I reckon they tell a better story, but see what you think.

    #5 is very interesting to me for some reason. i think it has something to do with the look on his face. i like how he is in the center also.
