    1. Thank you so much, Indah πŸ™‚

      Being a coastal state, there is a huge fishing community in Kerala.

      Also, they lead a very tough life fighting with the elements of nature and it’s always great spending some time with them to learn about their life and livelihoods.

  1. Lovely portrait, Sreejith. Bit ambivalent on this one. On one hand, paddling and fishing to make a living isn’t the most glamorous life…but probably the most humble and by not seeing the guy’s eyes you made this sentiment shine through πŸ™‚

    We all work hard for what we need…sometimes not always what we want. Bug we make do of what we can lay our hand on πŸ™‚ Best wishes this week, my friend πŸ™‚

    1. I just loved your quote, ‘We all work hard for what we need…sometimes not always what we want’…

      I think, the toughest thing in life is identifying ‘ what we really want?’

      Once you could set your true goals and work hard to achieve that, no one could stop you… I am sure πŸ™‚

      Thanks again Mabel for your lovely comments πŸ™‚

    1. In a way it’s an excuse also, ha ha πŸ™‚

      I started this blog with the idea of sharing my travel stories, but slowly due to time constraints I managed to post photo stories and now a days mostly single image posts, that too on Wednesdays πŸ™‚

      But, I always try to post something people feels worth their time πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much Indira for your kind words and hope you are doing great πŸ™‚

  2. I thought at first that I was sorry I could not see the man’s eyes, but then I read what Mabel said, and I appreciate it now. Without his expression, I have to look at the rest of the photo, and see the story there. It’s a beautiful picture, Sreejith.

    1. Thank you so much, Amy πŸ™‚

      I always enjoyed talking to local people where ever I travel, that not only gives us a different perspective about the place but on life itself…

      It helps in my photography as well πŸ™‚

      Wish you a Very Happy and Peaceful New Year πŸ™‚

    1. Grazie mille πŸ™‚

      Ci scusiamo per la risposta ritardata…

      I just used the google translate and hope it meant ‘apologies for the delayed response’.

      Buona giornata πŸ™‚
