Photographer's Note

This is a short revisit to TE,I hope y’all are doing well!

For this purpose I’ve chosen the fishery harbour of delightful Santa Luzia in the Sotavento in southern Portugal. The place where my first TE photos were taken in 2004. The village is also called ('O Capital de Polvo' – the octopus capital) and has a large fishery fleet and wharf. Where, together with the thriving wharf business, there are also some interesting wrecks to be enjoyed on the 'ship cemetery' of the wharf. Like the 'Pérola Negra' (Black pearl) depicted here.

I used a wholly manual lens here, the Samyang 85 1,4, with its aperture wide open. The name of this post is 'a title of a play and a movie'. Ánd a referral to the initial process of learning to operate a lens like this. It was very rewarding in terms of the renewed understanding of working with minimal DoF…but it didn’t come easy ;-)
