Smile and Gold #1

"Without ever being tired, and never miss an opportunity, because nature is starting to not friendly with us. Maybe this is all our fault too, but we're just little man who have to survive, from the ferociously ocean, and the uncertain weather that began". That's a phrase that I catch from each blood sweat flowing from the fishermen. Beneath the blazing sun, which blacken their skin, the traditional fishermen kept spread their nets into the sea, tirelessly.

They must be kept alive, by bringing their nets are frail, to continue to catch fishes.The results of fishes caught were probably not worth the pleasure of a plate of delicious cuisine in the restaurant. The wind that hit their faces is a friend to talk to every day. However, storms that rage is a sign that they must stop going to sea and breaks.

Sunny weather and the abundance fishes is the most precious treasure for their subsistence from the coast. Their sincerity smile is a blessing for the children and their wives are always faithful waiting for the fishermen from coast. The fish from the ocean, it is a piece of jewelry that they will show off with their massive shoulders, to prospective buyers with pride and deep satisfaction. All that is a form from gratitude to the Creator for the gift of today. "We, the fishermen here are always grateful to matter how much God has given for the us today", that's their motto in the work, every day.

    Voted, yes I like this story. I like the quotes & photos! Yes, it is we human's fault; there are simply too many of us so the oceans are fished out & we pollute everything. Birth control is the answer!
