Nice shots. I like the first one best, even though it’s not the sharpest of the set, because it has so much more energy, with ALL THOSE CRABS pouring out of the basket, and less of the surrounding stuff to distract. You need to go see this guy again! Lots of possibilities here!

Minnie, Frank,

I took these photos from about 10 yards away since there was sign asking customers not to go past the table at the entrance because of the hot equipment and machinery.

This chaos is normal for Sundays during bbq season, I suspect, so I will ask the manager during the week whether I could get closer on Sunday. The fellow was working frantically -- from the distance I couldn't determine how he could pick out the dead crabs so quickly and chuck them to his left then drop the live ones into the bucket on his right. He would haul in baskets from a delivery truck out on the ramp where I stood, sort and steam, then attend to customers for their paid orders. Breathless to watch.

Here's one, no pp other than cropping to 8x10, from the entryway.

Matt

Thanks Steve, but I believe you can do better than that. I realize it was late at night, though, so you'll get a pass. Matt
