Dead Parrot (Fish), Tahiti 1972

Dead Parrot Fish Tahiti 1971
Another weekly image from my archive. Click on it to make it larger.

In the archive there is a sequence of four or five images of an old toothless Tahitian spear fisherman who, from the shoreline, launches a spear into the pacific and comes up this this parrot fish.  Despite the dead fish, this image is very detailed and in the book I was able to make it a full page spread. 

In addition to the images I've posted on Flickr and those I've periodically posted on PND, I have now produced a Big Blurb Book: From the Archive 1960 -1980 of some of the images I really thought were special.

I now have an iPad version of this book for sale ($4.99) on the Blurb site which you can find here: STORE

I have to say, even on the iPad the book looks pretty good.
