Fisherman of Mekong

Originated from the roof the world, Tibetan Plateau, runs through 4,350 km, 6 countries, eventually into South China Sea of Pacific Ocean.  Mekong is the 12th-longest river in the world, hundreds of million live upon. 
When it is originated, it was called the Lancang Jiang – means “Turbulent River”, while in the Indochina Peninsula, it is rightfully called as Mekong, derived from “Mae Nam Khong”, a term both Thai and Laos origin, signaling “mother rivers”.
This image is shot in the riverbank of Mekong in Vientiane, Laos, a young fisherman casting net for fishing, as many millions others, live by the river.
