Photographer's Note

Something different from what we see in Trek Earth.

The first time i saw as a little boy on the TV the film JAWS i learned that the sea is not so 'innocent' as i always have thought. Since then i was always aware of these dangerous beasts. When i was 10 a shark passed 10 meters from the shore where i was playing and i remember the locals shooting at it. Whenever i swim i still take some precautions.
A friend of mine who is a fisherman caught this 3m shark that August and brought him ashore. He sold his meat (it is ok, not the same as the swordfish though) but its head was on his doorstep for a few days frightening kids even like that. I'm glad that it did not pass near me when i was swimming!!!
