The young man and the sea

I was at the Negombo fishmarket in Sri Lanka. It's also the place where the fishermen work. This young man had work since 4 in the morning, i had just witnessed him flying the net for small fishes. He had just finished working when I saw him entering the sea to clean himself from the fish bits. Alone in the water he was contemplating the horizon and i thought he was beautiful. I like the fact we see only his back while he's lost in his thought facing the sea and there's nothing in the frame but him and the water.
