On the beach of Vama Veche there's a fishermen camp. They live there in some wooden barracks or in the open space. Also, you can eat there, all kinds of fresh fish and sea fruits very cheap. Primitive and simple moments.
Vama Veche (historical names: Ilanlâk, Ilanlâc, Turkish: Ilanlık) is a village in Romania on the Black Sea coast, near the border with Bulgaria, at 28.57 E longitude, 43.75 N latitude. It is part of the commune of Limanu and in 2002, it had a population of 178.
It was founded in 1811 by a few Gagauz families, originally being named "Ilanlîk". Its current name literally means "Old customs point", named so after Southern Dobruja (the Cadrilater) had been included in Romania in 1913. In 1940, however, that region was ceded to Bulgaria, and the village lay once again near the border.
Even in Communist Romania, Vama Veche had the reputation of a non-mainstream tourist destination, which has only grown since the Romanian Revolution of 1989. During the communist era, concern for border patrol sight lines spared Vama Veche the development that occurred in other Romanian Black Sea resorts. It became a hangout for intellectuals; for reasons that are not exactly clear, the generally repressive regime of Nicolae Ceauşescu chose to tolerate this countercultural oasis, as long as people had their identity papers with them. Accommodations consisted of tents or rooms rented from peasants or fishermen. While camping is theoretically not permitted, to this day, many visitors or semi-permanent residents still stay in tents on the beach.
Famous for its nude beach, since the late 1990's Vama Veche has experienced development and gentrification, which has led to a "Save Vama Veche" campaign that is lobbying for the area's environmental conservation and a halt to development and mass tourism. A major part of the Save Vama Veche campaign is the 2003 founding of the Stufstock music festival. Both "Save Vama Veche" campaign and Stufstock Festival were initiated and belongs to A.P.C.A.P.B.C (Association for Conserving Bio-Cultural Protected Areas) NGO. The August 2003 festival drew a crowd of about 10,000. The 2004 edition drew about 20,000 people. The 2005 Stufstock drew a record 40,000-large crowd, formed mainly by rockers, bohemians, punkers and goths. Many argue that it has become too popular. In 2004, allegedly as a result of the campaign, legislation was enacted, limiting construction of new housing and roads or paving of existing roads. As of 2006, this seems to be enforced, with no visible new permanent structures being built within the preceding year.

Très belle vue de cette plage avec le baquet rouge et ce vielles bouteilles, la belle courbe en fond sur la biae, ce ciel qui se perd, merveilleux.
Bravo et amitié

The red basket standing out in the composition is beautiful, it gives a wonderful contrast with the rest of the scene! Beautiful composition! Great job!

The red bowl adds a splash of colour and helps create a sense of depth as we look out along the beach. The dog is a nice bonus, bringing a touch of vitality to the scene. Very good sharpness throughout.

Intéressant les objets sur l'avant plan avec le bac rouge qui donne une touche de couleurs et une excellente profondeur, le joli plus dans cette image est la présence du chien..

Draga Dan, acesta e raspunsul tau mai real? Sa dea dracu daca poza asta nu arata exact ca existenta mea de acum,e ca o radiografie a sufletului meu...nu stiu ce as putea sa spun...Totusi rosul optimist al albioarei inutile e semn ca Furadanu nu e bun la gust....Mai, copile, tu ma ingrijorezi....

a telling image to present the leftovers of the fisherman's camp, symbols of people leading a very life very different from the complexity of our consuming society...

a humorous and poetic shot on the still beach,
symbolic objects on the sand and the faithful dog on the nets are making quite poetic story of fisher's life there,
mild sea and simple shore shows us very peaceful ambience well,
thank you for your wonderful picture,

curious objects lost in the beach, at same time looks like trash and old utile objects. Nice framing where the objects in the foreground attracts the eyes

Hi Daniel, Fresh fish and sea fruits very cheap - why not. But the empty bottle so left on the beach - no...Even if I do not like garbage I find the composition attractive - the fisherman's nets, empty beach with only the dog observing the area.

- Nice composition Daniel, artistic atmosphere inside, good idea, well done!

This is a great shot - there is something about it that just grabs the eye. Cleraly the red bucket is a focal point, but there is so much interest in this shot without it every being clutterred. The small group of objects in the foreground, the dog in the middle ground and the serenity of the top quarter of the shot all combine together very well.
Nice, regards, Iain
