Akoya pearl farm and oysters farming

I took some photos about akoya pearl farms in 2006 year.

I took one photo at the shore. The remote is akoya pearl farm. Because of seawater pollution, the oysters must be cultured in the deep sea.

Because the tide fell, we had to took off our shoes, stepped to the small boat at the sea so that we can visit the pearl farm by boat.

The wide oyster beds
We finally got to the akoya pearl farm at the deep sea. The seawater is blue,no polluted to guarantee the quality of cultured pearls.
the bulk akoya oysters in the cages are hung beneath the sea water.

The akoya oysters in the cage
Saltwater oysters are generally nucleated using a "bead" prepared from mother-of-pearl. Then they are placed in cages and moved into the oyster beds. The pearls in oysters are gradually developing.
( Colorful films are not available, so we had to take photos using white-black films. )

Girl with a Pearl Earring

Girl with a Pearl Earring centers on Vermeer's prosperous Delft household during the 1660s. When Griet, the novel's quietly perceptive heroine, is hired as a servant, turmoil follows. First, the 16-year-old narrator becomes increasingly intimate with her master. Then Vermeer employs her as his assistant--and ultimately has Griet sit for him as a model. Chevalier vividly evokes the complex domestic tensions of the household, ruled over by the painter's jealous, eternally pregnant wife and his taciturn mother-in-law. At times the relationship between servant and master seems a little anachronistic. Still, Girl with a Pearl Earring does contain a final delicious twist.
