On Aldeburgh Beach

I went down to the beach one morning to watch the sunrise and found the fishermen landing their catch, so stopped to watch and then bought some fish for dinner. Delicious!

The light was beautiful, and the beach and sea so still. It only took 30 minutes or so for the boat to come ashore, travel up the beach and for the fish to be unloaded and go on sale.

I had my camera with me, so I was able to spend the time frantically dashing around the beach making the story. I shot the whole thing barebones: Panasonic GH2, 14-140 lens and sound from onboard mics only, which turned out surprisingly good for the job.

Transcript

“The best fish for the little uns today is skate because they don’t has bones. It just has cartilage,”

“Oh okay.”

“and when they’re cooked the meat just scrapes off the cartilage.”

“So what time do you get up in the morning?”

“uh this morning, 3 o’clock this morning.”
