Taken on the beach of Hilongos, Leyte, in the Philippines in 2000. This is a fisherman with a difference as he specialises in catching the fry, in the shallow beach waters, of fish that are farmed, like Bangus (milkfish).
On the left is a picture taken in around 1930 of my mother, when she was probably about 4 years old in her home town of Hilongos on the coast of rural Leyte, the Philippines. The print was in quite a bad state so I am pleased about the clean-up job I did. I only discovered this picture just before my mother's 80th birthday, so it was a nice surprise for her during her 80th celebrations. I entered this in the DPNow Salon contest a while back, which had the theme of 'Timeless'.
