We're returning to the Black Sea for another series of assignments. When we were there in November, 2012 for this story the anchovies / hamsi (hey, why else go) were a little thin on the ground. These photos are from October, 2011 when we were ankle deep in hamsi. The ports were bustling and fishermen and crew welcomed me onto boats and into their galleys. With any luck the hamsi will be running and I'll get my lens into the middle of it.
