A local hermit

A local hermit

I met him while I was shooting some photos by the river side. In fact it was his boat that we use in my photoshoot. He lived alone with his cat by the river in a small hut. You can see his cat looking at him admiringly as he posed for the photo. I guess the land owner must have put him here to look after the land. Every day he catches fishes and collected firewood from the woods across the river, and that's how he kept himself busy and probably it's what made him survived in this secluded location.


I can imagine how simple his life would be, away from the busy town or city. His wants and needs must be limited, peaceful and satisfactory. Would you trade your lifestyle with his? While we live in comforts and complaint about our lives, let us remember there are people who beat the odds to live.
