The Weekend in Black and White

The happiest fisherman on Lake Inle /Myanmar. He gave us his biggest smile and seemed delighted to meet us.


The most common fish in the lake is called nag hpein or simply Inle Carp.


After more smiles and having a conversation in sign language ..


...he slowly went his way.

  2. He slowly went on his way ... leaving his reflection for your camera to play with. Beautiful pictures in many ways, Karen. I am headed your way on the 25th ... will be in the Zurich area and in Grindelwald through Sept. 8 ... would love to meet you over a cup of tea or coffee if you are available :)

  27. Fantastic series Karen! You're right, he looks like the most content fisherman. He looks too big for his little boat, but that doesn't seem to bother him. Happy with so little,... wonderful to see...

    P. S.: Ich bin so ein Glückskind - heute schon wieder kein Regen, nur Wolken! So kann's bleiben (okay, gegen ein paar Grad über 20 hätte ich jetzt nicht wirklich was ...)
