Back in Dunbar on Thursday for our first "one day shoot." We had to find a subject and make 100 frames. I started off with a lobsterman named Gordon. I talked to him on the phone the night before to see if he would be around when we were going to be there and he assured me he would be there. He pulled into the harbor and I began photographing him unloading his boat. But, he was done in about 15 minutes and that wasn't quite enough time for me to make 100 varied frames. The night before he told me he would have much to do after he came in, but he had to go out of town to visit his mother after he was done unloading. Sorta dissapointing that I couldn't hang out with him for my 100 frames and I ended up at a bowling green instead. It was super harsh light in the middle of the day and I found it tough to make 100 frames that were all varied and interesting. I did get to have tea with them though.
Trying to make lawn bowling as interesting as possible.
The locker room at the bowling green. Place has been around since 1888.

I was in Dunbar on Saturday, another small coastal town on the Firth of Forth. They had their annual Lifeboat Day Gala going on in the harbor area, but these local kids who were jumping into the water were a bit more fun to photograph.

Finally have arrived in Scotland after long layovers at airports and arriving a day late.
Edinburgh Castle (show this to Larry, Dad)
My room at the flat
A photo from the day in North Berwick. I struggled all day to make good photographs and that got me a little strung out, but hopefully things will get better.
We hiked up to the top of The Law, which is a large hill that overlooks the coast in North Berwick.
Some people playing a round on the West Links Putting Green in North Berwick. They call our version of mini golf "crazy golf."
I'll try to update this thing for family as much as I can while I am away, but everyday is super busy and I'm dead tired when we return to the flat at the end of the day. That's all for now.
