PS029  Fresh from the morning catch of an Omani
fisherman. 

Sohar is situated in the coastal area of Al Batinah region. It has a newly constructed, modern and one of the biggest Fish Market in the region.  Most of the fishermen sell their catch here on a wholesale basis to fish vendors. They seldom sell their catch directly to the people and if they do, you have to go through a lot of talking to convince them.  I did not try doing that because in the first place i am not fluent in arabic and they also know little english or none at all.  So i just press on the shutter of my camera... and catch my own version of the fish.  ;-)

  4. Ha, I like your way of catching fish.
    These are quite beautiful.

    I too like to photograph the fish of the day at our local market fish sellers.

  8. The colours are superb. Thank you so much for visiting me. I've never met anyone from Oman before. I'm from Australia.

  9. I think you were wise to capture the fish with your camera rather than try to talk the fisher into selling you some. :)
