Sons of the Ocean

Two little boys playing amongst the fishing nets at a small fishing village along the coastline region of Ninh Thuan, Vietnam. Their families have been fishing and harvesting natural resources from the ocean for generations. These kids have never been sailed to the sea before since they were too young, so the net became their playground, a small ocean of their own, welcoming & holding them tight to its arm. Yet they will soon grow up and sail to the great ocean out there.
