A rare moment,a grand mother cleaned fishes near the wave..The gathering cats celebrated the event.
Behind her the blue door is a 'sirma' ,the place in which the boats are looked during the Winter.A general view from 'sirmata' you can see here
Μια σπάνια στιγμή που μια γιαγιά καθάριζε ψάρια κοντά στο κύμα. Οι μαζεμένες γάτες έκαναν πανηγύρι.
Πίσω της η μπλέ πόρτα είναι ένα 'σύρμα', το μέρος που φυλάσσονταν οι βάρκες κατά την διάρκεια του Χειμώνα.

great scene caught with high accuracy. The composition is excellent and artistic.
I believe that the so smooth and shining light prints a special personality to this photography, that together to the chromatic force of the blue door and railing of the stairs red, exert force.
Great work, a very natural atmosphere: sea, reflections, sun hitting on rocks, cats and the grand mother preplowing the fish. Fantastic.

Πολύ όμορφη ματιά!!
Το " σύρμα" απάνεμη γωνίτσα!! Η ηρεμία της γιαγιάς και το γλέντι των γατιών ολοφάνερη!!!

Geia Sou Danos,
a great picture of everyday life. Colours are excellent, especially because they give the texture of the rocks. Good contrast with lots of detail, and I love the part of the shore with the old woman, the cats and the rope. Marvelous light and play of light and shadows.

Καλημέρα Δάνο, όμορφη γραφική σκηνή της νησιώτικης καθημερηνότητας.
Οι γατούλες σε αυτά τα μέρη συνήθως καλοπερνούν.

This is a fine capture of daily life, a frame full of interesting details!
I notice the cats coming to enjoy their part, I'm not sure but I guess the steep stairs is how they get to this place...
Soon fishing season will start, and I hope I too will be cleaning some trout by the lakeside!

Great daily life shot with attractive composition, I like the splendid details, clarity and colours are excellent. Very well done! Have a nice day
MarcT (20964) 2008-02-12 5:42
Beautiful daily life picture.
The funny part of the story are those cats and their royal meal.
belido (19934) 2008-02-12 5:46
very nice capture. I like the way you shot with the tight view and great luminosity even in hard light conditions as we see. Nice to see the cats beside the old woman. It looks a claustrofobic place. The blue door is really an eye catcher and works fine to complement the composition. Very well done!

Probably strange but...unusual so great for a picture.

Hi Danos, beautiful one, colorful, with good quality, POV and light too.

Γεια σου Δάνε,
Υπέροχη και ιδιαίτερη στιγμή! Καθώς οι παππούδες μου είναι ψαράδες το σκηνικό μου ξυπνά αναμνήσέις...στις οποίες φυσικά συμπεριλαμβάνεται και ένας στρατός από γάτες...:D ! Το σκηνικό είναι πολύ όμορφο, λιτό και έχεις αξιοποιησεί με τέχνη τις πατέντες των ψαράδων!

nice one Danos,
the cleaner is is in the shot, nice pov with the blue doors, very nice light in a fine composition, good photojob, have a nice day.
anducina (8407) 2008-02-12 10:23
Interesting, picturesque, unusual--the sun-lighted rocks, the blue window and door, the old woman near the water and the cats...Well captured.

Γειά σου Δάνο, εξαιρετική εικόνα με πολύ όμορφα χρώματα και φωτισμό. Μ' αρέσουν πολύ η μπλέ πόρτα τα κάγκελα και το ανοιχτό παράθυρο στο πλάΐ της σκάλας. Χαιρετώ,

I like this shot. The details are very interesting and the colors quite rich and stunniing. I like how you framed and presented this shot. Fine work and TFS. Gerald
stego (24132) 2008-02-12 16:27
It's a beautiful image, very well composed, specially because the subject doesn't offer much. The lady and the cats are very well placed, but they don't stand out. That's the less achieved thing here. I guess that the shadow is to blame.

The cats eat very gladly a part of fish, we see four or five cats close to the fisherman.
You play very well with light and shadows certainly on the rocks, the blue door and the handrail of the stair are excellent details.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful and picturesque scenery :] Nice composition, colours and lighting, well framed
trekks (14348) 2008-02-13 8:24
Very interesting shot of this corner for this woman and framing the shadow view. Nice work.
From where did you shoot this, or how many platforms floating there in your WS?
parbo (11092) 2008-02-13 16:19
Very nice, very warm scene that reminds me a lot of memories. Your photo excellently transfer the atmosphere there. Narrow entrance to shore with sharp stair, high steps, blue-white colors and especially created a little space from cliffs. I like your decisive moment while capturing elder grandma while cats are waiting bonus. Wonderful, congratulations.

Olá Danos, nice daily life scene from this marvellous place. The general view on your other post is magnificent with a wonderful colorful effect from the diferent doors and windows. Here, we are at the presence of the blue address and even the bucket she's using is blue. Of course that this is a feast to the cats :D Nice rocky background and good light management, considering the main subject under the shadow. It might be interesting to show more water reflections on the bottom showing less scenery on top.
Fis2 (99832) 2008-02-14 7:19
Curious place. Interesting moment. Good composition and frame. I like the light and colors.
josepmarin (58359) 2008-02-14 8:34
Caught well this daily scene in your setting. The lady cleaning the fish while the cats celebrate it and take advantage of this great opportunity, the blue and white door, and the cliff illuminated by the Sun they form an image with a good graphical and organized well information.
pierrefonds (67633) 2008-02-15 5:03
A good capture of a daily scenery, the grandmother cleaning the fishes and of the cats waiting for something to eat. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the house and of the rock formation. The photo is clear and precise. Well done, have a nice day.
scroller (3445) 2008-02-16 4:53
Its also a very good dailylife photo from Milos. The blue colour, the woman and rough mountainside,
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-02-17 1:06
Excellent capture of this daily file scene with the woman cleannig the fishers and the cats eating...
Great POV and light very well managed,
TFS and have a nice Sunday
Jakab (3867) 2008-02-17 8:41
definitely not a picture tourists usually can take - raher an insider view. At first glance I thought I would have chosen a tighter crop so as to focus more on the scene with the figure and the cats. But then I have recognized the importance of the ambience for the atmosphere and the composition. Pretty as it is!

Geia sou Dano
I had not seen this photo of Klima.
You return perfectly the extraordinary peace of the place especially at the present time when the sun brings its last beams. It is for me always incredible to observe it: we live all on the same Earth, in Europe... which difference enters the life of this yaya with its cats Klima and mine in Paris or even yours in Athens...
I so like these contrasts!
Thank you for this photo
Tue (38790) 2008-02-21 10:22
A good capture of daily life with the woman and the eating cats. Good composition with a nice balance between light and shadow. The blue door is attractive in the centre. Good work!
noborders (1010) 2008-02-24 10:15
Hi Danos, what interests me the most in this photo is the 'sirma' that you mention, it seems a cave inside the rock and I'd love to see how it looks inside, returning often in central Turkey (Cappadocia) where there are plenty of rooms carved into the rock (some for habitation, others for storage or garage). Very interesting post, as well as the other one that you mention in the link.
LamCam (3603) 2008-02-25 1:16
You have shown very well how the huge rocks
overshadow the figure of the woman, and the cats. The geometric shapes of the stairs and sirma, with their splashes of bright colour contrast with the rough rocky landscape. There is a feeling of intimacy, with the woman working quietly on her own - very well captured.
kdialyna (3148) 2008-02-25 12:38
Μια απλή καθημερινή στιγμή που μέσα από την απλότητα της "βγάζει" κάτι όμορφο, κάτι που σε κάνει να ηρεμείς και να σκεφτείς πόσο εύκολα και με πόσο απλά πράγματα μπορείς να γίνεις ευτυχισμένος.
gunbud (34066) 2008-05-05 19:26
Lovely low light capture of this old woman cleaning the days catch while the hungry cats wait for their share. Lovely clear color with excellent sharpness and details to this lovely image.

Tecnicamente está uma beleza de trabalho. Uma beleza de cena do quotidiano.

χαριτωμένη σκηνή με την κυρούλα να καθαρίζει τα ψάρια της με το νερό της θάλασσας.Ένα ωραίο στιγμιότυπο από την καθημερινή ζωή στη Μήλο.
ikeharel (73007) 2012-03-16 1:01
Only when opened the image I realized those cats having a meal awaited...
Nice perspective on this corner under the mighty cliff, and the "perking" boat garage-door in blue.
