photo of a very old Huron/French fish trap


This fish trap hangs inside the blockhouse near the entrance to Ste. Marie Among the Hurons, reconstructed fortified French mission 1640s era. Midland, Ontario, Canada. It measures about 3 feet in diameter at its widest point and here is collapsed, in use it would be pulled out to its full length, placed in the river or lake and the fish would enter the wide mouth and end up trapped in the narrow end. Of wood stick construction.

camera Nikon 5700, handheld.

July 2 2012: when I put my brain to think about one of my better photos, one I would be proud for anyone to see with my name attached, this comes to mind.
