Octopus hanging like this look very dead and more exotic than really appetizing, but I still regard them as among the great delicacies of the Mediterranean area, unfortunately quite expensive in Greece, strangely much cheaper in Croatia and Montenegro. I wonder why. Along with the white and blue surroundings the hanging octopuses create an almost iconic Greek view reminding me, and surely many others, of warm, dark evenings in late summer.

Now all I need is Fix Hellas beer and some calamari to accompany this perfect setting for dining and relaxing. A nice daily life scene with good sharpness and color saturation. The triangular spur at left with the whitewashed stone village makes a fine backdrop. Tfs!

Drying octopus like this are seen everywhere in Greece. It is a daily life scene that transports you mentally into a different culture as well as place. I can well imagine myself sitting in the restauarant eating these octopus once cooked.

i have never tasted octopus though certain sea food restaurants in India do have them in the menu. Now I know from Gert's note that it is a delicacy in the western world so maybe I'll give it a try someday :-).
Your picture is a fine relaxed shot of the restaurant with perfect clarity and interesting details. The diagonal hill with the houses below make a lovely backdrop.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

Those hanged fish to dry, are in contrast of the beach view we see, and maybe do not smell in contrast... My humor only.
Combined nicely the slop "falling" to sea, the houses along the share, and the closer elements in view, notable mostly is the flag.
Fine composition, lovely colors and light collected.

J'ai justement mangé une salade de pieuvre en fin de semaine et elle était très bonne. Assez drôle de les voir sécher comme du linge au soleil sous celle lumière magique.

Un coin sympat de ce restaurant près de la mer, j'aime le calmars mais cuit dans mon assiette :-), là il ne me donne pas trop envie, bien que je sais que c'est typique....
Belle lumière et présentation

They look like squid and i am sure they are not too keen on hanging out there! What a lovely little corner of the Aegean!

A scene we cannnot find everywhere! It's a nice composition with the harbour, the octopus hanging and the Greek flag. It was taken in winter but it looks a little like summer. Beautiful light and colours!
