The fishermen of Ko Samui

By ColleenA
Good morning.....
Thank you for your continued support...
Some images of the fishermen on the fishing vessels...as colourful as their fishing vessels..., some of these guys are so young...a really hard life....these two guys spotted me and the one solutes me with his ice cream
Have a nice day Grin

Fascinating series of shots. If I had to chose it would be the net menders in V2 but they are all excellent.

A great set of images Colleen. It certainly looks as though they have to graft for whatever they are paid

Well collected reportage, Colleen, and how many of us can put 'saluted with an ice cream' on our CV GrinGrin

Great samples of the activity here, Colleen.
Not sure what the middle chap in V4 is up to but all images good!

A hard life indeed.

Some looking more like footballers than fishermen! Wink A great set, Colleen, showing us a different way of life compared to here. Think V1 has to be the winner, though Smile

The hard life shows in the faces - the young 'football' team are at least showing signs of enjoyment in V4
but the man in V5 shows signs of life's struggle.
The two boys in V1 are handsome but the furrow in the brow of the older one already shows a sign of worry.
All excellent images of their way of life.
