Today I want to take you on another trip of mine.
Three years ago, I was on Helgoland, a small island in the North Sea, located quite away from the main lands between England and Germany. We were there for photographing baby grey seals in mid January.
These old lobster huts standing beside the road along the coast from the harbour to the beginning of the small city. Now, you can find here a gift shop, a jewelry shop, a tiny pub and a d-i-y shop. Most of them are still used for personal purposes. Once, poor workers for the than big lobster fishing business lived here during the lobster fishing season. Now, there are too few lobsters around the island to fish them anymore. A scientific breeding project tries to increase the population, because lobsters can’t come over from other locations because of the isolated location of Helgoland.
This is my contribution to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this week.
