Photographer's Note

"Throwing the net...." is one of my favorite sculptures from the La Paz Malecón. The sculptor -- artista plástico jalisciense Octavio Hernández -- has been extremely creative in crafting this fisherman's net. I love the artistic choice to emphasize the fisherman's repetitive act of faith, throwing the net, but never knowing what might result.

I wish I could claim to have seen the gleam of sidelight that accentuates the pocket of the fisherman's trousers, but I have to confess, I did not. It was a nice surprise when reviewing the images once I returned home!

As you can see, this was a day of high clouds, growing thicker as the day went on. My only significant post-processing here was to de-saturate the blues, so that the sky on the right did not clash too drastically with the sky on the left.
