Viet fishermen







Fishermen around Phan Thiet, Vietnam go out in these baskets and net fish. You see them bobbing around the rather intense surf all day. It looks really nutty. when I saw them pulling into shore early on the Tet (Chinese New Year) afternoon, I sprinted down the beach with my camera.

The bottom shots are of one of the guy's wrinkly cut up, bandaged foot and all the fisherman sitting around smoking cigs after coming in. They didn't seem to catch much, but were very excited by this little baby lobster.
