Fishnet Girls of Zhuhai China

This is my second photo of these hard working girls. They collect and then repair fish nets. Zhuhai China is a southwestern coastal city (across from Macau) with a large fishing industry. Old style fishing traditions used these large nets to catch small/mid sized fish for sale in the local markets. The Zhuhai local fishing boats just unloaded and these girls have gathered a heavy collection of nets to work on or pass along to others who do repairs. This is a daily routine and part of the busy fishing system at work here. My heartfelt respects to these hardy industrious ladies from Zhuhai.

I did work with the local university here and took my spare time to walk the markets and ports out among these fine people.
