UAE Coasts by Shoayb UAE Coasts by Shoayb
first of all am really sorry for not mentioning anything in the description of this photo lool
i just realized the number of the comments asking about whats in the photo and what are these nets used for
well, this photo was one part of a complete series which tells a story about the daily fishing life in the UAE, and it got the grand prize in Mansoor Photography Award this year

those nets are used in a traditional method of fishing in the UAE called 'Qaraqeer', where there is some food for the fishes inside it, and it has just one large hole and it get smaller and smaller when the fish go further so it stuck in the center of this net

hope its now clear for you, and sorry for being lazy in describing the photos i upload lool

i will upload the complete portfolio here soon, meanwhile you can see it on my website :

haha, yes.  I thought it was a special fishing net.  The lines just make me think of a game.  Maybe when they are bored at work, they can play...  :D  Grats on your DD and interesting to read the description.  Also grats on the award it won.  Great composition and perspective.

My best guess is crab or shrimp pots. They look a little different in Cape Breton; more colorful, for one, but the basic design looks similar.

Shoayb Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
yes, but its for fishing in general not just for crab and shrimps

Are they for catching crabs? They look flat on the bottom with a dome that has a hole in the side and a  funnel shaped guard that keeps the crabs in.  Maybe..... I don't know.
