Oh I love this picture. Timeless, in a way. He seems to have a Sisyphean task.

Oh my goodness! That looks like an overwhelming job! I'm exhausted just thinking about what a long, hard process that this must be!

Oh there is so much to see in this photograph. To my eye, the net is impossibly tangled but I'm sure he knows what to do!
Great shot VP!

excellent photo...I've wondered if the mending of nets was still done...I'm pleased to know that there are those that still pursue this humble yet important craft

Estou passando em visita à sua página.

Se só olhr não doecem.
Os olhos não chorarião.
Mas,para quem tem sentimentos,
à dor é tão grande.
E é maior que à Alma.
