A flock of seagulls, a line of cars parked along the shoulder of the highway and a crowd of onlookers encouraged us to pull over to the side of the road and check out the action while driving along False Bay. When we got out of the car, we realized that dragnet fisherman were just about to bring in their catch. We gathered with the crowd to watch the action and were not disappointed.
We step back to see what is inside the net.
Sharks to be thrown back in the ocean.
The sharks wiggle and slip away.
A fisherman engaging the crowd.
Fresh caught fish sold here.
Local artist Penny Steynor caught the beauty and movement of the fishermen at work in her painting Trek Fisherman. I discovered her work at the Constantiaberg Art Society exhibition at Kirstenbosch Gardens. See more of Steynor's work here.
