16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Two fishermen carefully drags their net to catch milkfish fry as the morning sun paints a colorful sky.

As we were waiting for our boat to bring us to an island, I noticed this a handful of fishermen slowly and carefully dragging their nets along the shore. Asking a local, he mentioned the they were trying to catch milkfish (Chanos chanos) fry which they will then sell to fish farms. They often do more than five circuits just to get a good number to sell. Set against the colorful morning sky, the silhouettes of these two men captures the hard work it is needed to provide for your families here in Barrio Bukid, Philippines.
