Fisherman's net 01 - Goa Series
This is a series of four photographs showing the throwing of net by a local Goani fisherman in water on the sea shore to catch the fish for their livelihood, when during monsoon the sea is very rough and they can not go out deep in the sea in boats.

This first Picture shows when the circular net is just thrown in the air by the fisherman.
Clicked in the peak of monsoon on a seashore during a drizzle in early morning with grey heavy overcast conditions. The view finder of the camera and the lens from element used to get fogged within a second as soon as I used to put the camera to my eye. the fisherman was curious but co-operative. I used a wide angle lens to capture the action from very close to the fisherman, yet to capture the complete net (about 14-16 feet in diameter) in my frame.
