"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

An Assembly Of Fishermen

________________

Along Kerala’s beaches, the evenings see fishermen assembling by their boats.

________________

________________

They are waiting for the sunset.

________________

________________

In the cool of the night, fish rise closer to the surface waters,

________________

________________

While the men are spared the intense glaring heat of the sun,

________________

________________

At sea, in an open boat.

    • Have not seen a trout – or salmon – since I’ve been here, rainbow or otherwise!
