We will leave soon on our annual trip to photograph the people of Robe. We have made this journey for the last four years and the pictures we get!! There are more characters per square metre than I have found in anywhere I've ever been. From the Grays that I met on my first trip (Mr Gray flew bombers in WW2), to 100 yr old Annie Wright and these cray fishermen; and then there's Steve, the grumpiest man in town (and the nicest man you'll ever meet). I think Steve has left town now; he stayed just long enough to get a street named after him. About thirty years. Apparently that's not long enough to become a local, though.

All have a story to tell. 

I wonder who we'll find this year.
