Casting a net
It is not easy to cast a fishing net, neither is it easy to take good photographs of a person casting the net. I had the opportunity recently of taking a series of photos of a fisherman casting his net, but myself was not satisfied with the outcome of these pictures, especially the composition. My opportunity to take more pictures came to an abrupt end because the fisherman pulled up his net and rowed the boat out of my sight. I am sure his sudden change of course was not because of me taking his pictures, but it was rather because of his own frustration and disappointment in failing to catch any fish or prawn after several attempts.
