During one of my days on the island of Aruba, I decided to rent a bicycle and ride around the island to get some photos of things other than the beach I’d been religiously laying on since my arrival.

Lucky for me, I happened upon a fine old gentleman trying his luck at fishing off some of the rocks I was riding by. Even luckier for me, he was more than happy to let me take his photo and sit with him for a bit.

His name is Lecos Croes, and he is part of the most prominent families on the island. His father was a fisherman, and although he doesn’t currently make his living doing the same, he loves to spend his afternoons with a line in his hand, hoping for a bite or two.
