Time to Chill

I never get tired of taking pictures of people fishing. I'm not sure why that is other than it's a common pastime where I live. Maybe if I lived in a landlocked region it would be farmers. Nevertheless, my favorite time to catch someone fishing is when the light is softer in the sky. I think that time also generates a sort of tension with the people fishing because if they only have a few minutes left. But I am clueless when it comes to fishing so take that with a grain of salt.

I took this while standing next to the fishing pier at Fort DeSoto Park in St Petersburg Florida. I have several shots from here, each a different composition. Just like the fishermen, I know the light is about to end so I'm working feverishly looking for different compositions. I try get as many different shots from my outings because there is a lot of effort in just getting here.

Maybe I was just projecting my own sense of urgency on the fishermen. Come to think about it, fishermen never seem rushed. If ever there were a group of people with time on their side its fishermen. Maybe that's the draw of it, it takes you outside the daily grind and allows you time to slowdown and think. Again, I don't really know but that's what I imagine.

Maybe these are just all questions that don't need to be answered and are just the product of too much coffee. I think its time to chill.
