Fishing 1 of 3 - The Splash

Posted by Sugata (Falls Church, United States) on 12 February 2016 in Lifestyle & Culture.

This sequence of three photos taken in the village of Majiara in West Bengal, India show the different steps of catching fish from a pond. In this photo, the fisherman in beating the water with a stick to scare the fish towards the shallows. He is standing on an inflated rubber tube which serves as a raft.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast (there are nearly 4000 already!) and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
