VIETNAM 2013 #93

A huge THANK YOU to Dave_Henderson, Nigel (Nigeve1) and Pete for their Awards for yesterday’s upload. I'm very pleased and encouraged to accept those two awards.

The workers in the fishing net repair workshop did not seem stressed when I visited them. While concentrating on their work, they talk to each others and have a good laugh.They work at their own pace which I thought was really fast! They’ve done that for years so speed is normal to them.
Those women seem happy as they are doing an important job: repairing nets so their fishermen husbands could bring back more fish so they could have more money to live on.

A slight variation on yesterday’s upload. The camera was placed on the net, looking down.

A huge THANK YOU to Joline for her User Award for the photo Vietnam2013 #93 and an equally huge THANK YOU to Dave_Henderson, Nigel (Nigeve1) and Pete for their Awards for the photo Vietnam 2013 #92. Very much appreciated.

I like this angle even better than yesterday's. I also like that touch of her blue garment showing through the net.
