Squid fishing

Having worked hard for five days shooting polo & people in and around Hua Hin.

I took some time to go and explore a part of Thailand I’d heard was charming and about, but had not been too. It was a lovely area called Dolphin Bay and well known by the locals for the squid fishing. Every family fished every evening.

When I first arrived, I found it to be pretty deserted with just the odd boat resting on the shore. These boats were colourful, with recent Buddhist offerings, juxtaposed to a frame holding up a mains voltage fluorescent lighting setup with many bulbs.

Here are few of the images from the first day…
