In the book 'Studies From Nature' Stephen Thompson quotes Ruskin in the letterpress accompanying his photograph of The Foreland, North Devon. In the "architecture of the sea" Ruskin likens the fisher-boat "to the cottage on the land."

Thompson adds: "There seems to be always one at the little pier-head, loading or unloading, and so drawing their breath once more to go out to sea again, without joy and without lament."
