I hope he was successful. It's something we don't see much around here as it's illegal in many places.

Rose said...

He looks like its a job and not fun.

What is he trying to scoop up? It keeps him off the streets anyway. MB

I like the treatment here. You did say there weren't any gators, right?

Nice shot. Net fishing is also illegal here.

It looks like a giant snake and that being said, I'm not stepping foot in those waters!

Jacob said...

@ Antjas - What? Are you afeared of a few little alligators? I haven't seen any in these waters nor have I seen snakes in these waters; 'course that doesn't mean they're not there... ;-)

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scene - I think he's fishing for bait fish...but I'm not sure. He didn't seem to have much luck.

Very cool photo. Only Native Americans can fish with nets here, as far as I know, but maybe we could consider this "playing"? With the treatment, it seems more like an illustration for Huck Finn.

Let me know if that video blows yer socks off or not. I think it might be your cup o' tea. As Sue said, "No egos."

Jacob said...

@ Tapirgal - Yes, I think this was mostly play. And I probably won't get to the video 'til later today ... but I'll let you know ...

Being a songwriter (I had the number 1 song on the Independent Country Radio Charts in Europe in 1998; it made number 10 on the Top 50 Radio charts in Europe ... it was called "Too Good To Be Blue) I've always had the greatest admiration for Dylan...

Not writing music anymore ... but I'm sure I'll enjoy this.

I like how you've processed this photo, Jacob.

I think it's difficult! It's amazing, a little boy is doing it!

Is the young lad fishing for big-beaked eagles? That was some float!

JM said...

Very well composed and worked!

He's beautifully dressed and coiffed, this young man. This is a great capture, Jacob. You wrote music?

I'm glad that's a net and not a great big fish!!
