This photo reminds me of one of my favorite books: The Old Man and the Sea, by Ernest Hemingway. The book describes an old man who is forced to fish in isolation because of his bad luck. Here are a couple of quotes:

“He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish…”

“It made the boy sad to see the old man come in each day with his skiff empty and he always went down to help him carry either the coiled lines or the gaff and harpoon and the sail that was furled around the mast.”
