This photo from Kerkyra (Corfu) city was taken at the beginning of this summer. While northern Europe nowadays is just a mess of rain and cool winds, the Mediterranean area is still hot and there may still be a need of advice how to cool down. My solution is a strong fan and a large glass of cold beer.
By the way, this is not two photos joined together, but one ordinary picture of a fan standing outside a bar next to a slowly rotating "poster" showing the delicacies available.
An alternative way of beating the heat is seen in a workshop.

Hi Gert. The title says it all. Your photo is basically the proof of that title and the experience of the Albanian heat. The division of the photos I like very well. With the beer you can stand the heat, maybe better. Overall, a meaningful photo. Well done. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Muito boa a ideia na coposiçăo dessa imagem.
O cartaz com comidas quentes e de frente, o ventilador ligado, deu um aspecto bem interessante.
O enquadramento, cores e contrastes ficaran fabuloso.

Bom dia Gert
Very nice composition and an excellent idea to join these elements . The best thing to beat the heat , I think that it is a chop. Here the hot time is begining.Until December we will suffer a temp of more than 40 degrees.

A fine picture with two different parts. The fan is clearly blowing air to the food poster and the beer looks quite attractive too.
Glint (6171) 2011-08-20 10:37
I like this, it has graphical appeal. The beer and the fan says it all. All I need to do now is book my holidsy to Corfu.

Hi gert, indeed it was so with the weather this summer. we had very strong winds and heave rains alsmost every day, in the same time I was looking for a cloud in the hot craoatia. This bad and this worse. Yes, a fan is not so bad solution, the second item for cooling - no, thanks. Fine composition.

This makes a fascinating collection of your work and a showcase for your imagination. Having said that this is quite nicely put together and makes interesting viewing. Super detail, gosh that is a big one, need good teeth for that. I thought that fan went out of fashion years ago. This certainly has plenty of vibrant colours in this one and lot of detail to take in too. Great inclusion with that fan and wall to reflect the reality. A very colourful candid collage, well spotted and taken, Congrats

A Corfů la patria del buon mangiare ..un fast food ....meglio la pioggia allora .
Un'estate con molto sole ...qui siamo il condizionatore acceso.
La composizione fa la sintesi del fine stagione ...

nice solution to survive from hot atmosphere. The composition is nice. Colours are superb. The running fan, the cooled beer are looking good in this frame and surely would be nice in such weather... A different type of composition from you, and a fine one. Tfs.

Excellent shot with very strong graphic. I like the combination of the two very different side of the image, one with so much colors with warm tone and lot of food and drink and the less busy side, cool with the fan, trying to cool down the other side of the iamge. Very interesting composition and work very nicely. I like it.

Very funny composition, good idea
You concentrated some elements for fighting the heat but not all are recommended. The burger meat is not a good choice.

amazing composition. Fine theme abot the hot day. Nice colourful image. Good WS also. Well presentation.
Have a nice day.

An intriguing shot with two ideal recipes for a hot summer...fan & a mug of chilled beer. Like the split frame which is naturally built into the picture. A rare picture of yours without human presence, but which shows your good photographic eye

this is a curious picture, but at the very first look (especially in the thumbnail) it really looks like a collage of two photos!
a picturesque and "cooling" scene :) I wouldn't mind sitting now on a seaside with a fan near me while I'm drinking and eating something very tasty :)
COSTANTINO (69660) 2011-09-10 2:36
typical pretty shot withous words
thanks for sharing it with us
have a nice week end
ourania (51079) 2013-06-18 6:21
the Mediterranean heat has already started here. In spite of a strong north wind, it's hot during the day and we will soon reach 40 degrees. I'm not sure the ideas offered on the left side of the frame are really effective but your composition is wonderful and the black fan against the neutral backdrop makes a striking combination with the colourful and busy other half. A very clear and superbly illuminated image. The picture in the workshop is great too. Congrtulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
