“Shrimp is the Fruit of the Sea”

“Shrimp is the Fruit of the Sea”

After a long night’s search for those delectable crustations, a shrimp boat’s nets dry in the hot afternoon sun…

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There’s shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That, that’s about it.

  1. You’ve really made my mouth water with all your talk of shrimp>. 🙂 Your photos are wonderful. Ron.

    1. Me too. That,s probably why shrimping is a recurring theme of mine. Thanks Sylvia.

  2. Fabulous images Ron! Shrimp are my favourite seafood! 🙂

    1. I debated staying with color but I rather like to more dominating lines and shapes B&w allowed. Thanks for you comment Madhu.

    1. Those crusteations seems to be everyone’s favorite.
      Thank you for your comment.

    1. These images were made in Appalachicola, Florida, where we had stopped for oysters. Love them both. Thanks Carol.

  3. What fantastic black and white shots. The clarity, the balance between light and shadow! I think I’m the only one on here who is not a great fan of shrimp. But I do love your photos! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Emillio. The lighting was rather harsh so I had to work on the images some. Thank you for visiting.

  4. Bubba was great ~ these are great shots Ron. The sadness of seeing these fishing fleets die out (we see them in HK, where the fishing industry is suffering as well). The B&W really adds to the mood.

    1. You are so right. The fisheries are overfished and whole industries die out while the demand for protein grows exponentially. Thanks for your kind comment on the images Randall.

  5. Una Serie Realmente Hermosa, Muy Buen Trabajo En B&W… Un Placer Descubrir Tu Blog… Saludos.
