Description

"Tide flat below camp site - Ie Shima" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Tide Flat, Ie Shima. Hill regularly hiked down to the ocean below his camp. Though the trail was 'a rugged climb to get back to camp,' he praised the swimming there, and delighted in the tide pools and tide flats created by low tides. On one occasion, he wrote Martha, 'This afternoon, Van and Price and I took cameras and clothes and went down on the coral shelf. The tide being out, we took a long walk: beautiful pools full of tiny brilliantly colored tropical fish, spider crabs, etc. Took a half dozen Kodachromes with the Leica." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
