Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting


GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

When I went to the tranquil lake of Buhi in Camarines Sur a year ago, one of the most interesting subjects I captured from the place was the boy with a pink umbrella, who is fishing, on the photo. My observations on what he was doing that time made me conclude that this week’s photo challenge has a lot to say about bait fishing because it entails an avalanche of waiting.

    Oh, I like this for “waiting” … perfect. I’ve fished myself, and waiting is the magic word.

        It does – but I also love the way the opposite bank just slices though the blue with it’s slash of green/yellow vividness — this would look fabulous hanging on a wall.

    Fishing with bait definitely involves a lot of waiting… waiting for the fish to bite. Love the pink umbrella. Very good entry!

    I agree ” this week’s photo challenge has a lot to say about bait fishing because it involves an avalanche of WAITING.”.. So this boy made it to this week’s challenge, haha 🙂
