The Foreland, North Devon
Photographer: Thompson, Stephen
Medium: Photographic print
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."
