Everyone has to tell a story...
…so had Manni and Björn, two fisherman my friend Thomas and I met on a sunset mission a few days ago. Ten hours earlier I started my journey catching a train in the southwest of Germany bringing me all the way up to the north. The real north. However, let´s start at the beginning. Once I arrived in Kiel we provided my luggage, had some coffee and then jumped into the car to see the sun set on the beautiful Kiel Fjord in a small village called Stein.
As soon as we arrived we decided to visit the harbour first because Thomas told me that the dock was build in the shape of a fish, something I had to verify with my drone obviously. Right after we found a good spot to start the drone two fisherman came home to the harbour with their tiny boat called „Butt“ (named like the fish „Halibut“).
When I asked one of the fishermans if I can take some photos from their catch and the whole scenery he replied, of course you can. I expressed my thank and all he said was „people who talk can be helped“ a sentence his father teached him. A simple but yet beautiful and true wisdom I will never forget! Talking to the people is the best thing you can do.
We´ve spend quite a lot of time with these guys and that was interesting and pretty much fun. Thomas and I just took a few photos while Manni and Björn provided their catch of the day, eighty halibut stated Manni real down to earth. No big deal. Whilst time went on we had a great time, chatting a little and in the end exchanged numbers to send the photos to them. It´s always super nice to meet new and inspiring people who just love what they do to relax, and just do it to have a good time and because they can. As my friend Thomas summed up pretty good, Fisherman and photographers are often on the right place at the same time, luckily.
