Let Me Take Some Rest, by Agnisoonu

I took the picture from a bridge. It was on Nov 1st 2008, “Kerala Piravi day” meaning birth date of Kerala state of India. My idea was to capture life of a common man on “Kerala Pirvi Day”. With this in mind, I went to nearby fish market and there I was standing on a bridge. I was watching a fisherman catching fish with his nets. After some time he came just bellow the bridge where I was standing. He want to take a break for smoking. I was more than happy seeing this. Took the shot. This is one of my favorite images in my collection.

    i like this photo. I am actually a tad bit annoyed at my perception. I couldnt tell the blue water was the water. At first i thought that man was against a blue wall hangning down from his shirt being hooked on the blue wall which almost resembled him hanging from the blue sky. and then i look closely, he is sitting on a boat. *sigh* beautiful picture.

    The thing that makes this picture stand out is the unique angle it is taken from. The subject is so clear but yet the expression is obscure, making the viewer think about the man on the boat…. his concerns, struggles. Agni has nailed this one.
