Capt. Tommy Edwards (no relation - that we know of) and crew let me tag along to document a day in the life of a commercial shrimper. Started at 3:30am - I was a few minutes late.... The dark; the noise; the quiet; the boredom; the anticipation; the smell; the heat; the brightness....

I grew up on the water swimming, fishing, building, and crawling around on boats -- my first real job (at 13yrs.) was unloading boats and cleaning fish. I guess all that got in my blood and I've come to be honored to accept any invitation to get out on the water -- especially with working watermen. Recently I was lucky enough to be invited along to pull some traps with Phil Tuttle, a lobsterman from Harpswell, Me. He works a total of 100 traps with his good friend Rad (50 apiece). We got a few bugs -- shared some suds -- and ate some of the sweetest steamers I've ever had.

We're up in Maine for the Nearly-No-Labor Day weekend and managed to get in a little food recon. at Three Tides in Belfast. Never had a Maine oyster before... and probably not too many people have since they're sort of a new menu thing up this way. Briney, fat, and a medium texture that tastes just like low tide....

We totally wrecked this masterpiece that Chef Sean Brock of McCrady's whipped up for an article for US Airways Magazine. Best half pound of bacon I've ever packed in.....

It seems like we've been hauling off to NC a lot lately and a couple of weeks ago we were in Asheville shooting Julyan Davis -- a great painter of natural, urban, and decaying landscapes. Of course we were shooting for a fall magazine issue with the temps topping out at 101 degrees!!!
