Photographer's Note

Near Mamallapuram, we spent some time watching fishermen coming back from the sea. A lot of them still use this kind of boat, a few pieces of wood tied up together.

During Tsunami, a lot of these boats were destroyed and charities offered many modern ones but curiously the people from Tamil Nadu seem to stick to the old ones. A great number of Caritas sponsored boats seem to just lie on the beach.
