This year, there's been an extraordinary run of shad in the
Connecticut River, which has lead to an extraordinary (albeit natural) die-off--with the result that there are deteriorating dead fish floating in the river and washing up on shore.
They do reek--but there's a certain beauty in their skeletal remains. I
have to admit that John, when he saw me working on this photo said,
"Wait--you took a picture of one of those smelly rotting fish?" Um, yeah...Now you know why he had that pensive wondering expression in that portrait: "I married a woman who takes pictures of stinking fish corpses!"
...is to fill 52 themes, one a week for the year. Some weeks, maybe I'll try to find several photos to fit the themes. Others, I may spend more time trying to perfect one that seems best to represent the theme. Three years of a photo-a-day opened my eyes, now I want to hone my skills.
