A view from the port of Lakki, outside of its cafe'-restaurant, to the marina and promenade of the town. The long building across the sea was built during the Italian occupation of the Dodecanese and served as barracks for the Italian navy and army. Today its ground floor is being used by several departments of the Municipality of Leros.
I hadn't been there so early in daytime before, since the boat arrives and departs at different hours. I enjoyed seeing there was life in the port at this hour too, liked the colours and the blue sky.
Thank you for visiting

Hi Ourania. I won't comment on the ubiquitous baseball cap (one of my pet hates) but instead I shall add that the photo enforces the strong bond of the locals and the sea. (Unless these are tourists.) The red chairs are great addition to the colour scheme and the light is so inviting. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Lovely capture, beautiful blue sea, and sky, the red chairs standing out against the sea.

Beautiful photo in superb light, nice colors. The overall arrangement with the red tables and chairs, relaxing couple enjoying drinks and the nice blue water, white boat and houses is perfect. This is an image that makes me feel good. Beautiful place, I'm getting a feeling of relaxation and enjoyment when I look at it.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice week.

J'aime bien cette composition car elle raconte une histoire. On ne saura jamais le sujet de la conversation mais on peut certainement l'imaginer. J'aime beaucoup le contraste du rouge et du bleu.

Belle vue sur cette terrasse au bord de l'eau. La couleur rouge des chaises contraste magnifiquement avec le reste de l'image. Belle lumière. Très bien fait.
Cricri (120609) 2014-03-03 8:33
Je m'assiérais bien sur une de ces chaises rouges et regarder la mer, le port comme le faut ces deux personnes qui semble être en pleine conversation, j'aime les couleurs du rouge et du bleu qui ce contraste si bien, vraiment un bel endroit pour se détendre

Blue stunning sky and sea, Ourania, a fine early morning on late summer, wondefully collected.
Red chairs adding the missing tone - just perfectly in contrast.
Yielding to summer days, to my opinion that's what the picture shows.

Hi Ourania, very good view of this interesting and beautiful scene of daily life in this restaurant with a nice background, very well captured in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Those red chairs are very striking against the blue backdrop, and as I look at the man here, it seems he has just thrown something into the sea. It makes me wonder what that was, was he that upset with his lunch that the whole thing was just thrown over? :)
Beautiful scene, such sun is something I miss. I do like that building across the water too, though I would never have thought it a barracks as the colors are so bright and cheerful.
All the best

You took this photo a couple of days before I had to leave Skiathos last year. I think we probably had the same kind of weather, and I just couldn't understand that the season was over, when the weather was at its very best. The morning colours are wonderful, with such clarity and crispness, no mid-day haze and not yet the very strong contrasts that can make photographing difficult. There is nothing particular going on here, and that what makes this view so delightful.

Une scène intéressante et agréable sous un beau soleil.
Joli bord de mer, belles couleurs et bon cadrage.

a nice scene from lovely Greece! I can still remember how wonderful it is to sit at a Greek taverna and think about..just nothing:)Just enjoy the warm climate and see boats and people passing by. Very nice composition, light and colors. The boat in the front of the table obscure the view a bit but it was not much you could do about that. Nice shot, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
όμορφα ζεστά χρώματα καλοκαιρινά,αν και τέλος Σεπτεμβρίου,και ωραίες λεπτομέρειες από το λιμάνι στο Λακκί,
οι κόκκινες καρέκλες δίνουν μία ωραία χρωματική αντίθεση στην εικόνα και η ένταξη των ανθρώπων στο κάδρο κάνει τη σύνθεση πιο φιλική,
καλά να περνάς,

This picture has it all! A beautiful view, blue sky and blue water, some persons to add life and most of all, some red items to catch the eyes. A very attractive summer picture with people enjoying the good life!
Subhogen (4067) 2014-03-04 9:41
What a fantastic place to sit and watch the boats pass by. Many attractive elements of the photo makes it a treat to watch. The couple enjoying the sun and the sea creates a relaxing atmosphere which you have captured very well in the frame. Like those red chairs adding bright colours to the composition. The blue sea and the clear sky is marvelous. Excellent shot with good clarity and colours as usual. Thanks for sharing.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-03-04 9:45
Looks like a nice place to have a meal and enjoy the beauty of the sea, this couple have the right idea to enjoy the sun. Beautiful scene especially the clear blue sky. Good pov and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

jcpix (13930) 2014-03-04 18:55
Did you catch this gentleman in the middle of the Chicken Dance...that's quite an interesting pose? :) As you mentioned, the colors are the main feature here, an instant attraction to red, white and blue. (Perhaps it's just a subliminal association for me as an American. lol)
I had originally thought the composition was leaning to the right, but a closer analysis looks like you've leveled this up with the sea just splendidly. There's an illusionary effect from the different elements in play, I think the diagonal of the foreground pavement plays tricks on the eyes. Always fun to find these unexpected surprises from places you thought you knew so well...just goes to show that proverbial "being in the right place at the right time" can bring a little nugget of opportunity. Nicely seen, and scene. :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.

Great shot from the port of Lakki and the man looks to be feeling pretty well here in the sunshine.Good lights and sharpness. TFS.
abmdsudi (55208) 2014-03-05 8:18
Slice of life on a glorious sunshine and warm day, a straight on shot overlooking the sea with striking white buildings in the backdrop depicting the typical Greek seaside scene. The persons add perspective and liven shot. Well done, TFS
photographer_sg (4414) 2014-03-05 9:54
Lovely view of the port with beautiful warmth and sunshine. The picture is a fine depiction of the relaxing time that the couple is enjoying. The colours are vivid but natural and attractive. Beautiful contrast of the chairs against the deep blue water. Thanks for sharing. have a nice evening and a great new day.
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-03-06 1:41
leisure,relaxed atmosphere and...sun-something I really miss lately in Germany:)
Very nice composition,which thanks to small details(like for example red chairs)is so eye-catching and has extraordinary graphics.
This strong contrast between red and blue is truly magnificent and at least as captivating as the atmosphere you´ve captured here.
Have a nice day
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-03-06 2:25
a beautiful composition is here which I missed earlier. Good use of bright light. The colours are so vibrant which pleasing eyes. Great composition with those people in foreground feeling the beauty of this place. Excellent one. Tfs.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-03-06 15:44
What a creative daily life scene of a couple enjoying life, and vues
Like the red color of the chairs that add contrast without lose greek stile
Charming capture of Lakki
mcmtanyel (24041) 2014-03-08 10:32
What a contrast to the weather we are having now, the weatherman was saying Edirne might get some snow on Monday, they are expecting another cold front from the Balkans. It'll last just one week, I hear, so my entire stay here will be in the rain. Oh well, they needed the rain.
This sunny, delightful photo from September is just what the doctor ordered for me, ;-), TFS.
