Clam Boat Fisherman of New Haven

Had the opportunity to photograph and observe this crew at work on a cold and cloudy March day. The business is full of characters, such as the three I went out on Long Island Sound with: Captain Patty, “The Big Handsome”, and James [calls himself “Clamnoum”] Namnoum. From what I saw, beards are part of the life (I felt naked with my three-day old stubble).
