Photo Hunt #245: Something Rusty/Over

IMG_4245

When I saw the theme for SOMETHING RUSTY I panicked a bit. I don’t particularly seek out rusty things to photograph, but then I remember that I photographed this rusty wheel or something on the rocky banks of Goat Rock Beach, I knew my search is OVER and that with this one image I was able to tackle the combined themes for today.

ABC Wednesday #71: S

S is for sampan. Photo taken in the seaside town of Tecnaf, Bangladesh near the border of Myanmar (Burma).

from wiki:

A sampan (Chinese: 舢舨; pinyin: shānbǎn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: sam-pán) is a relatively flat bottomed Chinese wooden boat from 3.5 to 4.5 m (11.5 to 14.8 ft) long. Some sampans include a small shelter on board, and may be used as a permanent habitation on inland waters. Sampans are generally used for transportation in coastal areas or rivers, and are often used as traditional fishing boats. It is unusual for a sampan to sail far from land as they do not have the means to survive rough weather.

The word “sampan” comes from the original Hokkien term for the boats, 三板 (sam pan), literally meaning “three planks”,[1] although this term is no longer used in modern Chinese. The name referred to the hull design, which consists of a flat bottom (made from one plank) joined to two sides (the other two planks). The design closely resembles Western hard chine boats like the scow or punt.

Sampans may be propelled by poles, oars (particularly a single, long sculling oar called a yuloh[2]) or may be fitted with outboard motors.

Sampans are still in use by rural residents of Southeast Asia, particularly Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Burma (Myanmar) and Vietnam.

Photo Hunt #244: Favorite Fruit/Neat

My favorite fruit is the tomato. From the beefstake and heirloom to the grape and cherry varieties and everything else in between I love them all, although some more than others.
