Fishing by the harbor

Finally rain stops and the sun is out (intermittently). I took this photo at Tsimshatsui seaside promenade and there were quite a few people fishing. The local traditional way is to hold the fishing line directly instead of using fishing rod. With the harbor so polluted I doubt if they would eat the fish though.

All the fun is in the catching not the eating. The water color is great.

did I mention my friends competed in a hawaiian canoe race in Hong kong harbor? My friends came in first but the Hong Kong people were quite good at hawaiian paddling. Must be all that dragon boat racing! I always wondered if holding the fishing line by hand cuts the hands up that seems harsh on the skin.

Good composition ... nice if the photo can see the face instead of the back the one who go fishing.
