Kerala is blessed with the chinese fishing nets…still reminding us of the erstwhile Kochi Muziris which was the historical trading hub where the Chinese, the Dutch, Jews, Portuguese, Arabs and the British traded their goods in return for black gold (pepper). The chinese fishing nets are one of their gifts to us, among many other. It takes lot of effort to lower the net into the depths and to pull it up. Every time one lowers the net, it reminds me of their anticipation and optimism of Humans…even if it is hardship…the lure or the anticipation of good times or news drives us forward.

I was dreaming of capturing this chinese net for some time now, and recently I decided to strike of this item from my photography bucket list.  So, I stopped , waited and clicked with my Canon 550D.
