A young boy from a nearby village fishing on the bank of the river Teesta (in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal, India) and enjoying himself to the fullest. During the monsoons, the landscape changes dramatically. Tomorrow I shall post a picture of the same location taken during the winter.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan decak u camcu sa mrezom za lov ribe.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown the boy in the boat with the nets for a catch of fish.
Good work, nice captured moment, beautiful colors.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

Interesting scene from daily life.

Natural colors add savor of photo.

this is a very fine composition, the boat seems endless and I like very much its well balanced diagonal that crosses the frame. The environment is defined by subtle textures and colours, there's excellent sharpness and the sense of depth is very effective, an important factor for the description of this scene. You captured the little boy's action with great timing, so the scene is meaningful and interesting, the action is enjoyed by the viewer as well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

A charming capture of this young lad trying his luck at fishing. I like very much the low light and the evident peaceful atmosphere. Very well composed and with excellent colours and detail.

A little boy having the time of his life trying to catch fish. A well composed shot showing this most innocent of times.
In England, there would be worries about health and safety: might the boy fall in the water, what if the boat tipped over! There was a time when children were taught to fend for themselves, when they were taught to swim so that expeditions like this were part of everyday life!
My warm regards,

Jolie scène de ce gamin avec son filet de pêche, bon POV, reflets et couleurs naturels

This is a highly enjoyable photo. The boy is obviously having fun, maybe he is also proud of being able to provide for his family. You have captured a quiet and peaceful atmosphere with fine colours and a very attractive light. The boat is well placed on a diagonal between the grassy areas.
Thanks for your comments a short while ago on my latest photo. The people were walking down a regular road, no steps.

A very good tranquil scene, idyllic, albeit it lonely. Well composed and well seen too on a clear day for fishing and a perfect spot for pics. An image with the mood and appealing to me in particular, I love the positioning, the reflection and the gentle ripply water and a little glimpse of red adds to a nice effect. Great lens work, Congrats

Hello dear Satya,
Just like your title; the beauty of the simplicity !
Very good layout with this cute little boy seemingly enjoying his loneliness.
TSF and best regards

Simple pleasure to capture such a simple scene in a good composition with the busy boy at work given a note of color
Like the boat position and the small waves in the quiet waters
Well done, regards

Hello Satya - Children usually make lovely photographic subjects and this little chap is so endearing. He emulates the adults and has learned to fish, probably by accompanying his father. A delightful scene.

Good to hear from you after quite a while!
This is a lively picture, one which we who are living in cities would apprciate more before of the liveliness and the simplicity of the act.
Well captured picture indeed!
