Family of 3 in Round Fishing Boat


There's something so perfect about this photo.


The Guardian, Wednesday 5 January 2011
"A fisherman arranges a fishing net as his wife paddles their boat in the waters of the Periyar river on the outskirts of the southern Indian city of Kochi."

He the fisherman, she the wife.
Tho it looks like a partnership to me.

She probably made the boat. .
It's not like an American family in a little craft. There you'd see a car, with him at the wheel.
I guess there can be no back seat driving in a round boat.

It's a nice angle. In any case, it seems like a boat that requires some balance and teamwork in order to get some fishing done due to its size. Like anywhere else in the world, fishing requires a lot of patience and concentration...
