Some of you may know the story;This is in fact a copy I did after I received the news that the original which was not in my possession ,passed the initial selection.They kindly accepted the copy in for the final judging.Here is the original which I posted the couple of years ago in the gallery with the name Morning Work.I changed the name to Evening Work because what he is doing is done after returning from fishing ,that is ,in the evening time.
