South Adriatic's Fisherma

South Adriatic's Fishermans: a short story of true life in Brindisi. 12 of 15 Questa credo sia la foto che pi rappresenta il mio punto di vista. Il maestro Cito mi ha cazziato mentre la scattavo. Piena navigazione, vedo lo sguardo assorto del pescatore che guarda la rete scorrere. Me la rischio. Stacco la fotocamera dalla cinghia, la impugno saldamente con una sola mano e mi sporgo dallo scafo per circa mezzo metro. Sarei potuto cadere in acqua, o rischiare che mi scivolasse la fotocamera in mare. Ma ho avuto l'inquadratura che volevo. Un punto di vista alternativo rispetto agli altri partecipanti. Non voglio fare il figo, ma la morale semplice. Se non rischi qualcosa nella vita, non avrai mai ci che desideri. #brindisi #puglia #Italia #italy #apulia #southitaly #adriatic #sea #sealife #sealovers #seascape #cittadimare #fisherman #pescatori #night #citylife #life #portrait #portrait_mood #work #reportage #photography #lanottegiuseppephotographer #nikonphoto #iamnikon #natgeoitalia #natgeo #people

An extract on #sea

Owing to the present state of continental drift, the Northern Hemisphere is now fairly equally divided between land and sea (a ratio of about 2:3) but the South is overwhelmingly oceanic (1:4.7). Salinity in the open ocean is generally in a narrow band around 3.5% by mass, although this can vary in more landlocked waters, near the mouths of large rivers, or at great depths. About 85% of the solids in the open sea are sodium chloride. Deep-sea currents are produced by differences in salinity and temperature. Surface currents are formed by the friction of waves produced by the wind and by tides, the changes in local sea level produced by the gravity of the Moon and Sun. The direction of all of these is governed by surface and submarine land masses and by the rotation of the Earth (the Coriolis effect). Former changes in sea levels have left continental shelves, shallow areas in the sea close to land. These nutrient-rich waters teem with life, which provide humans with substantial supplies of foodmainly fish, but also shellfish, mammals, and seaweedwhich are both harvested in the wild and farmed. The most diverse areas surround great tropical coral reefs. Whaling in the deep sea was once common but whales' dwindling numbers prompted international conservation efforts and finally a moratorium on most commercial hunting. Oceanography has established that not all life is restricted to the sunlit surface waters: even under enormous depths and pressures, nutrients streaming from hydrothermal vents support their own unique ecosystem. Life may have started there and aquatic microbial mats are generally credited with the oxygenation of Earth's atmosphere; both plants and animals first evolved in the sea. The sea is an essential aspect of human trade, travel, mineral extraction, and power generation. This has also made it essential to warfare and left major cities exposed to earthquakes and volcanoes from nearby faults; powerful tsunami waves; and hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones produced in the tropics. This importance and duality has affected human culture, from early sea gods to the epic poetry of Homer to the changes induced by the Columbian Exchange, from burial at sea to Basho's haikus to hyperrealist marine art, and inspiring music ranging from the shanties in The Complaynt of Scotland to Rimsky-Korsakov's "The Sea and Sinbad's Ship" to A-mei's "Listen to the Sea". It is the scene of leisure activities including swimming, diving, surfing, and sailing. However, population growth, industrialization, and intensive farming have all contributed to present-day marine pollution. Atmospheric carbon dioxide is being absorbed in increasing amounts, lowering its pH in a process known as ocean acidification. The shared nature of the sea has made overfishing an increasing problem.
