    This 80 year old bajau spear fisherman keeps up his daily tradition of spearing fish to support his family of three generations living in the one hut. Whle no longer nomadic, the Bajau still live entirely from the resources that the coral reefs provide.

    There is actually quite a bit missing from this photo-- the end of the spear, fish, context on where or how deep we are, but none of that matters. This is the kind of photo you pass by and your eyes grow wider. You have to spend time with it. The simple goggles, finless feet, gray beard and small slow flow of bubbles all tell enough to know that we are in the presence of an incredible man. Not to mention the rich beautiful blue. Thanks for sharing, Caine!
