Monochrome Weekly Theme


On my own


Photobucket

I have great admiration for those whose passion in life is fishing. They stands there for hours and sometimes go home empty handed. Ysabelle and I passed this gentleman on our way to the park and still on that same spot an hour or so later when we were on our way back home. Patience indeed is a virtue, i just hope he has been rewarded with few catch at the end.


Sometimes we need to be on our own.....to contemplate on life, to bask in the wonder that is nature or simply to catch a fish.

  1. A beautiful image Eng, he does seem determined yet patient. I am amazed at how smooth the water is, almost like a mirror.

  6. I have tried fishing. I just can't get the hand of being quiet, and sitting still that long. Maybe when I am old, I can do it.

  7. The life of a fisherman is definitely not as glamorous as we might imagine, Eng. They work hard to bring US all of that great fish to eat.

    Great monochrome picture.
    Hugs,

  9. Have to try some monochrome after seeing all these beauties.

    This brings us back to the black and white of the childhood time.

  10. Nice photograph Eng. I saw a fisherman yesterday, all by his lonesome as well. I asked if he had caught anything. He hadn't caught anything but said it was a beautiful day not to catch anything.

  11. True, fishing entails patience...the hubby can do that and we even go home empty handed. This is a great photo eng.

  12. lonely...
    Yet perhaps there is fulfillment in that aloneness. Maybe the rest of of rush by in this world only catching glimpses of something deeper.

  13. I never did understand fishing. However, people who do it say it is the best. Now, I could sit and stare at your photo all day!

  14. Actually one of the things I would love to do someday.. go fishing.

    Like one of the readers, not sure if I can manage to stay still for hours and I don't mind not getting any fish at all.

    I just love the quiet time, perfect time to reflect.

    Hey Eng, turuan mo ko mag monochrome huh, I have my camera today - I feel left out, most of The Salitypers are rocking the world of photography !
