Photographer's Note

Three photos from the island of Qeshm, where the traditional Middle East boats, called dhow, are still made like in the old times.
On the first picture - the boat is being built in a shipyard. In the middle - boat near the coast of the village> I am not sure if the boat in the lower picture is not ready yet or is dying. Anyway, one can observe some wrecks.

Dhow is the generic name of a number of traditional sailing vessels with one or more masts with settee or sometimes lateen sails, used in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean region.
