a lovely moment shared between the fisherman and a cat looking for some fish in the nets, soft B&W mood.

Je comprends très bien ce geste de tendresse car j'aime beaucoup les chats. Je viens juste de perdre le mien et j'ai eu beaucoup de peine. Le noir et blanc donne une petite touche documentaire à l'ensemble.

Nice choise of B&W, made good balance on the variable light.
The way this guy fondled the cat, his posture - telling the viewer he likes animals and maybe cats are favorit.
Fine taken the moment,

This is a simple but very nice and heart-warming photo. It's good to see the fisherman taking a moment off his work to caress his little furry friend, but I hope he gave the cat some fish too. Gentleness doesn't fill an empty stomach.

What a nice scene! I don't know if the black cat on the boat means good or bad luck but for sure this one looks so lovely:) Well seen and taken with superb sense of the moment.

A nice moment captured between these two friends. Clearly there is a symbiotic relationship between the fisherman and the fish loving cat that highlights the story of how animals became domesticated. A black cat too - for good luck, or a witches familiar depending on your chosen superstition.
A well observed shot. nice tonal range too.
Thanks and have a good evening.

la scelta del b&w mette in evidenza la scena tra i due soggetti, senza distrazioni dovute a colori forti, così l'occhio si posa su questo movimento tenero e delicato, che si rafforza proprio grazie all'uomo. Il suo essere pescatore, per cui la vita che conduce, lo portano ad essere rude, ma tutto questo si trasforma in delicatezza davanti ad un piccolo gatto nero.
Uno scatto, una storia, due modi di vedere una stessa persona.

I'll have to show this one to a few of my sisters, they love cats, and would certainly appreciate the sentiment expressed here. :) I'm a "dog guy" myself, but I can assuredly relate to the gesture and affection being shown for our furry little friends...and when you can infuse some emotion into a picture like this, you have yourself a winner.
It's a simple thing, and a wonderful moment captured that conveys so much more than the details of the picture itself...to which there a lot of aspects/objects to enjoy when looking past the action being played out. A brilliant idea to go with the black & white too, emphasizing the heavy contrast of the cat and its presence in this scene. I think Gert said it best, it's a heart-warming result. :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.

A very cute capture, possibly a regular visitor to the fisherman looking for a fish or two. Well spotted and rendered in Mono.
