    1. Yea, Serene is the perfect word, for this beautiful place and moment πŸ™‚

      I went to explore this lovely beach near my home one evening and I spent hours watching the fisher folk in action.

      They were in no hurry and looked like life was in a slow forward mode there.

      I think, whenever I feel like relaxing, I should go there, with my camera, for sure πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much, Dalo, for your time πŸ™‚


  1. Beautiful, beautiful shot, Sreejith. The person there looks so graceful and at peace with the world. Great contrast – bright on the left and dark on the right. It looks like the guy is happily running away from the darkness and into the light πŸ™‚

    I love how there is so much detail in each of your shots. Sometimes there might be a lot of colour. In this one. the ripples of the water are accentuated so well. Part of me thinks the guy is also walking on water… πŸ˜‰

    Well done, Sreejith. Your photos never fail to amaze me πŸ™‚

    1. Bingo…

      You really brought out the essence of this image, Mabel…

      There is grace and peace in his actions and the ambiance was so beautiful to savor this moment as a visitor, but the real point is that, this whole fishing community is coming out of darkness and to a brighter world.

      They were one of the poorest class in the society and their life was really miserable until a few years back.

      Now, most of the younger generation is well educated and their life is not solely depended on sea, which used to be so unpredictable.

      And those who follow the traditional fishing related work also been paid well.

      The socioeconomic imbalance in Kerala is relatively less compared to other part of the country.

      Only problem for me is, they don’t sell their fresh catch now a days, and even if they do, I have to pay almost the market rate πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for your time πŸ™‚


      1. I didn’t realise fishing was a big part of the livelihoods in India. I thought rearing cattle was how many made a living here. Now I know better thanks to you πŸ™‚

        It’s good to hear those who rely on fishing get by. Let’s hope they be more honest and sell fresher fish in the future. Fresh fish is best πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, Yvette πŸ™‚

      It was a lovely evening and I just had great time watching the slow paced life of the fisherman.

      They had a rhythm in their work, and that is essential for their survival, the rhythm of life πŸ™‚


      1. I like the way you said that “the rhythm of life”
        and you know coming back to enjoy this golden action shot – well I think I realized that an important part of the feel to this shot has to do with the item tot he front left. (log, boat, ?) well I know sometimes folks crop things like that out – but the way you left it in gives us that triangle with the man and boat – and this unity allows that glisten in the middle and back to become stronger (at least for me this was the case) and I really enjoyed reading the other reader comments here πŸ™‚

        1. You don’t used to miss anything in my images, Yvette and always capture the essence of it πŸ™‚

          The boat in the picture is inseparable for this person and part of his life.

          This sandy patch is revealed as it’s the time of low tide and he’s trying his luck by throwing the net in shallow waters…

          As soon as I took it, I felt it’s symbolic in many ways, and while taking I concentrated on an overall feel …

          Thanks a gain for your thoughts and it’s really become a challenge to come up with images like this πŸ™‚

          You are really helping me to improve as a photographer…


      2. well you are so sweet to stay that – and I like how I can just informally comment on your work and you enjoy feedback – that is way cool.
        also, I think this is what makes your work vibrant – because it comes from the gut (so to speak) and has that feel of you….


    1. Sun was shining brightly and it was the time of low tide and this small sandy path was exposed, all worked well for me to click this shot…

      Lucky with timing I feel πŸ™‚

      Great to see you liked this one, Paula πŸ™‚
