A group of people working on a fenced field in Crithoni, picking potatoes. I think they are family and friends, I 'd seen people working there before, spending the day until dusk, with music and children playing at a corner. This time I stopped and watched them for a while and took some photos over the whitewashed fence.
Thank you for visiting

This is a pleasant and interesting photo. I always enjoy watching human activities of all kinds, weather work or leisure. This seems to be a little of both. We see people busy with different kinds of tasks and some temporarily busy watching their friends.

Très intéressant panorama et beau groupe de travailleurs. J'en ai arraché souvent des patates, lorsque j'étais tout jeune, alors que mon père avait une ferme. Excellente prise de vue et belle panoplie de couleurs.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne fin de journée,

What a cool scene. And what a rare scene too, as these days so many people seem to work against each other to make a fast dollar, its great to see the agrarian soul that built our civilizations is still a big thing. What I really like here too is that you seem to have timed this so that you have captured every aspect of the work being done by somebody! One hoeing, one digging, one planting, one bagging, one carrying, and of course one watching everyone else do the work :)
Great capture, a feelgood photo!
All the best

Hello Our and a
a fine picture of daily life with vibrant colours and pleasing composition. The different postures of the people at work provide good variety and make it interesting. Thanks for sharing.

you had really great idea for this shot and to transmit to us some meaningful aspects of our daily-life and how we should act everyday.
Cooperation and helping other people is so beautiful attitude,unfortunately often forgotten in daily-life.
This shot reminds us and shows how beautiful and unique feeling it can be.
You turned this simple scene in something very meaningul and interesting.Well done!
Wish You all the best

What a lovely photograph and one which reminds us of warmer and drier and sunnier weather as well as happier times!
A lovely scene of people all co-operating and working to help to achieve the same task. It's nice to see the younger men doing the heavier work while the lady and the older man on the left seem to be there in a more "advisory" capacity!
Lovely sunny light and bright summery colours, an excellent composition and excellent details and sharpness too. In fact, it's so sharp that I seem to be seeing someone in the background who looks like they are sitting on top of a small chimney!

Hi Ourania. An interesting photo that shows the old ways when work was made easier as friends (fellow villagers) came and helped each other in the various onerous tasks, even repairing roofs or building extensions to houses. A way to "cement" relationships and forge good neighbourliness. Some vino, food and song would make the work easier. Glad to see that such ways are not totally gone. Regards. Klaudio.

Everyday life of the people of your country, the sense of cooperation and collaboration
We need people to each other at work, joy and sorrow
A good resolution

A very interesting picture! This because I see the date here, they are picking potatoes at the end of May! Here in Sweden we are happy to get new potatoes for the Midsummer herring! Most potatoes are picked around September. This is really a fine picture from daily life, with a pleasant activity and many colours.

A nice daily life picture with these people at work on potato's field.
Maybe a nice hobby, also excellent for the health.
A nice composition, good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The family men work together, brought up a wonderful scene, colorful an dynamc, and each member is doing something else.
Unlike the SE-Asia fields where we see women and childeren out in labor, here are only the men participating.
Fine liten shot, well done.
Have a nice weekend,

A productive record shot of the day, villagers helping out actively in the spirit of togetherness and cooperation. Harvesting is back breaking as shown but they also give great perspective and emphasis on the enormous task ahead of them. I do like those guys in blue and red really make them become the main subjects. This is an excellent image documenting the view into another life style and brilliant slice of life shot. I love the brilliant side light too, brightening the whole scene really well. Great effort on your part. Congrats

Although we are talking about potatoes here, this brings to mind our friend Carlo working in his olive garden with his lovely family. This photo is delightful. It is an important historical document aswell as something for that family to look at and cherish in years to come. Good honest hardwork and a necessity of life for thousands of years. Lucky you were there to catch it, because one day it may not be there anymore.
mirosu (15972) 2014-02-18 5:09
You have excellently captured human gardening, field activity. I like the arrangement in tight crop showing the whole working group. All in excellent light, nice colors.
Very well done.
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-02-18 13:44
You show us these people all working hard and together on this Veg. field.
We almost witness a production line here, with three guys, removing the top growth then digging the potatoes up, one boxing and one bagging them, and the Boss man.
Wonderful to see. Tfs,

Ουρανία, η φωτογραφια σου μου θυμίζει το κτηματάκι μου στο χωριό μου...ενα κομμάτι γης να χωράει τόση αγάπη και το ευφορο χώμα του να χαρίζει τοσα ομορφα και υγιεινά λαχανικά..ειδικά οι πατάτες εχουν άλλη γεύση, πραγματικής πατάτας..ειναι πολύ ομορφο να δουλεύουν οι άνθρωποι μαζί ειδικά στο μάζεμα της ελιάς..
μου αρέσει πολυ η αληθινή και παραδοσιακή εικόνα σου γεμάτη χρώμα!
