The Patience of a Fisherman, Essaouira, Morocco

Here’s a brief sneak peek from a 21-image series that I’ll be posting next week taken at the port of Essaouira, Morocco, in September. That’s a lot of netting to deal with, but the fisherman managed to plug the major holes. An achievement worthy of mention for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the 305th straight, was snapped on 19 September 2014.

Edited to add: I just added a longer gallery from my visit to this colorful, lively and busy port, along with a little bit about the history of the area and the Moroccan fishing industry in general. You can check it out here.
