I took this and other pictures after I was "trapped" by a sudden, heavy rainfall under a wooden parasol in Ayia Marina. Interesting scenes started occurring and so I stayed long after the rain had stopped. I think I could count myself among the fisherman's friends since he never complains or minds my hovering around his boat while he's working:)
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

lovely scene loaded with so much charm and unique,peaceful mood.
It looks so different from daily hustle and bustle of big cities and for me it captures very good the"Mediterranean" feeling and character of this scene.
Excellently composed,framed and what´s equally important timed scene!
Wish You a nice weekend

A well presented daily life image of fisherman and friend finding time for a chat. I like the point of view and the colours and detail. There is lots to see, not least the cats waiting to see if a tasty morsel or two might come their way.

I really enjoy watching your photographs. You have very good eyes for excellent photo subject selection and composition. This one is a very good example with great viewpoint, light and all details around. What I like in the composition? Excellent arrangement with the two men and five hungry cats (did I count properly?), white town houses in BG and the excellent boat details. Your direct POV is perfect.
I wish you a very nice weekend.
holmertz (42835) 2013-12-07 4:31
A good title for a good photo with lots of nice details. There are many colours, plenty of life, a man at work, nature and a village. It's an entirely pleasant photo to watch.
Kind regards, enjoy your weekend.

Hi Ourania, very good view of this interesting and beautiful scene of daily life in the harbor, perfectly captured in this interesting photo. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good afternoon and happy Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Excellently composed daily life-picture with this harbor scene.
A beautiful view between the two fishing boats with both men and the colourful nets in the foreground and also a great view of the white town built on the hill on the background.
The cats aren't absence on this picture. Honestly I cannot remember to have ever walked in a port in Greece without numerous cats around.
Best regards, Paul

Les deux hommes semblent en grande conversation pendant que l'un deux travaille à démêler ses filets de pèche.J'aime l'encadrement des deux bateaux qui situe très bien l'action. Les couleurs sont joliment saturées.

How could he complain, you are making him a star! If not for you, the people from all around the world who see your photos would never know of him. Imagine his surprise if tourists began to approach him as they recognized him :)
A really great daily life scene, the colors are vivid, and the background of the town is perfect. I'm amazed at all the cats in the lower right! Set for a free meal I guess?
Thanks as always
bukitgolfb301 (36758) 2013-12-07 12:47
Hi dear Ourania, how are you?
Nice snap image, a little different from your daily theme. But I can see your coutry's daily life so well.
Perfect cropping makes so stable and complete framework as such. Sharp and clear presentation is already your trademark as usual.
Thanks a lot for your sharing and have a good Sunday! Takero just away from Tokyo
PS. FIFA in Brazil we have to compete--.

Hello Ourania ,
A fine "fishing port" scene . The composition is excellent , with the two men and their nets (and the cats) framed by the boats , and the village in the BG . We can feel the winter atmosphere , too , and how the greenery is back in the fields after thee autumn rains .
ChrisJ (100872) 2013-12-07 13:51
Lol! I bet they are only friends for as long as the free handouts of second rate and undersized fish last. After that, they're gone! Good daily life scene of the fihing boat, yellow nets and of course the ever hopeful cats. Superb sharpness and tight framing. Have a nice weekend!
mcmtanyel (14567) 2013-12-07 14:00
What a lovely photo from the daily life of your beautiful island! On top of the bright colors, we get the added pleasure of gazing upon a few plump kitties. The fishing industry must be doing well on your island, all the cats I have seen look pretty well-fed.
nikkitta (15334) 2013-12-07 15:05
Hola dear Ourania
Nothing more interesting and fascinating that watching people at work , like here the fisherman with his nets and quite concentrated he is
Like and love the inclusion of the cats, obviously waiting for some fish
In next future take care with Colombia's team
Have a great week end

A splendid reportage picture with daily life atmosphere from a small harbor. The little friends are very funny. Congratulations!

I have got one pack of real "Fisherman's friend" on my work table ;) Good title for this composition, amazing capture of the cats. They are really waiting for. Fine shot! TFS!
Have a nice week!

Hello Ourania. Nice daily life scene and sharp photo with many elements to look at. Good that it includes some of the inhabited land behind. Pleasant light that show us that bright sun is not essential to a successful Greek photo! Cheers, Claude.
ikeharel (59635) 2013-12-08 7:27
Charming scene, nice moment along the jetty, where fishermen and fish are sharing same thoughts...
Fine clear view of the bay and town on the far side, faces expression and boats in vivid colors - all culminate to a wonderful photo.
pajaran (53376) 2013-12-08 11:12
Lep pogled na mesto, trenutak sa ribarima i mackama ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Ribari popravljaju mrezu, ceka ih nov dan u ribolovu.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the place, the moment the fishermen and the cat ...
Good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice place and moment shown.
Fishermen repair network, they face new day of fishing.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

Tout comme moi j'aime allée vers l'endroit des pêcheurs, c'est toujours sympathique et intéressant a voir, comme sur cette image, les filets colorées, la discution des deux personnes, la présence des chats quand ce n'est pas les mouettes :-), belle vue sur le village entre les bateaux, très belle présentation
Passer une très belle soirée
Silvio1953 (125767) 2013-12-11 10:35
Ciao Ourania, bella scena di vita quotidiana, splendida nitidezza e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio
abmdsudi (44856) 2013-12-11 22:39
This is a beautiful daily life image that you have good vivid detail around as the main elements steal most of attention but still not lacking of good background interest. Lovely colours and vibrancy, you are spot on as the humble folks-at-work so fully engrossed in their task which does have a lot of character and immediately engaged my attention with the little something just works so nicely there. To sum up, this is an image with plenty to take in and a fine example of observational picture. Congrats.
Kielia (23847) 2013-12-12 6:09
a wonderful presentation of this typical harbor scene, taken from an excellent POV. I like the perspective and the excellent composition a lot. The cats are adding a charming touch to the image. This is really a very pleasant photo. My compliments also for the nice title!
Romano46 (18466) 2013-12-13 10:15
la forza di questa foto sta nella semplicità della scena che ben rappresenta un attimo di vita di tutti i giorni rubato a mezzo del tuo obiettivo.
Una scena alla quale anche i gatti sembra vogliano partecipare con la loro presenza.
I colori sono piacevolissimi nella loro partticolare saturazione che mette in bella evidenza il giallo delle reti che assumono un ruolo predominante nella composizione insieme al pescatore ed al suo amico.
Una bella composizione che hai saputo raccogliere in maniera discreta senza minimamente disturbare i soggetti e per questo ancor più bella e spontanea.
Ciao, buona serata e buon fine settimana
adores (38711) 2013-12-19 14:15
Even the rainy days can be sometimes great for photos:)! I like this daily scene, with the fishermen working and the cats around waiting to get some fish. The fishing nets and the boats add colour and the cats add a lot to the scene. Well framed!
daddo (24964) 2013-12-24 4:21
Hi Ourania. A nice moment which once more confirms that for ever person that works, there is another that stands by and talks. Lovely composition as we are regaled with details near and far. A happy festive season to you and a healthy and prosperous new year. Klaudio.

Hi dear Ourania
These men are doing a good shot. Excellent sharpness and exposure. Depth and good composition. Thanks
