In the Mekong Delta town of My Tho, Vietnam, a flowing expanse of fishing net is carefully checked for damage. This image offers a glimpse into the daily routine of area fishermen, says the photographer, Your Shot member Phạm Tỵ. “After a long trip at sea, they have to check and mend the damaged nets … It sometimes takes a half day to finish their work. Therefore, the fishermen … mend the nets as fast as possible for the next trip to sea.”
Tỵ’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
