My brother Matt Atkin has sent over another collection of his remarkable photos from the Far East, this time depicting traditionally built wooden craft and fishing folk on the coast of Vietnam, close to the ancient city of Hoi An, which is itself not far from Da Nang.

Matt points out that the eyes on some of the craft are a traditional feature, and that their job is to help a boat ‘see’ fish.

As usual, click on the images for a much larger shot – and as always, these photos remain the photographer’s copyright. Thanks Matt!
