Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

Halong Bay Fisherman

A solitary fisherman on Halong Bay, in Vietnam, surrounded by limestone karsts. Little has changed for centuries. Though small groups of families raft their floating homes together into small communities life for the individual fishermen is a solitary one.

Something I relate to. Alone on the water for a few hours fishing, thinking, dreaming. A solitary but satisfying time. Contemplative, meditative, zen-like.

    1. Thank you. It is the first image that came to mind for the theme.

  3. To meditate or reflect on life is good, but if for a living, it is important to consider …

    1. So true. I am sure this fisherman doesn’t see his setting as idyllically as I do.

    1. Thanks. And thank you for your visits and comments. They are appreciated.

      1. TY for your patience as I catch up on the rest!
