watery wednesday #18

23 Jun

Summer is here and so is fun outdoors, camping, swimming, fishing, etc.

This is one of my most fave shots.  Man teaches boy the basics of fishing.  When my brother saw this image, he commented that it also looks as if the boy is the one giving instructions to the man about fishing.  What do you think?

Taken summer of 2007 @ Kings River in Eastern California, an hour’s drive from Sequioa-Kings Canyon NP.

Get wet with more water images here.

    I think the boy is insisting his way, and the grown up wants it his way! Nevertheless, it is a beautiful photograph!

    He should mayby bend over towards the kid if he wants to teach him… I don’t know. I like it and I understand very much that it’s one of your favourite shots.

    I’m going to have to say the boy has a greater look of authority on his face. (But my daughter has that same look and she hasn’t a clue what she’s talking about a good deal of the time!)

    Hmmm … methinks the boy may be asking questions?
    Hugs and blessings,

    It is a lovely picture. Lovely to see a child chatting to an adult and learning things.

    Lol, Too me at first it looked like the man just caught a 60 pound boy.
    Nice picture. I would love to be there.

    I agree with your brother…I tend to get loads of instructions from kids I know.

    Very nice image! I think the boy is studying the reel so he’ll know what to do when it’s his turn to cast out the line.

    I think the story could go both ways! They both seem to be enjoying themselves.
    Great composition!

    Maybe your brother is correct, 😉 Don’t you just love little kids?

    Perhaps neither of them know what’s going on and they’re passing the rod between themselves trying to figure out just how it works.

    Don’t the kids always think they know what they are talking about?

    I love fishing. And living in an island i have many opportunities to do it. Great picture. I wonder who’s the teacher!!!

    a lot of patience and some skill is needed in fishing, I guess.
    have a great week.

    I dunno — the boy looks like he’d rather be doing something else — like swimming! 😉
    Fun post for Watery Wednesday!

    It looks like they are discussing it quite on an even level here. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the child knew just as much as the adult about fishing. Nice capture of a moment in life.

    Nice shot. It does look like the boy could be giving the man instructions. 🙂
