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.

The quirky angle of view is not usually to my taste but works quite well here. The colourful nets in the foreground make a pleasant frame and set the scene in context. Very good colours and clarity.

Mais que fait cette botte à cet endroit? Le cadrage est encore une fois intrigant et force le spectateur à un peu de travail.

an unusal, original and very well thought out image. Love the jaunty angle and all the detail. All so sharp and textured. Super work, well done!

Bravo et amitié

Hi daniel, original composition with the diagonal lines. Even old gummi shoe can be eyecatching sometimes.

ottimo taglio e inclinazione.
L'insieme delle reti in primo piano in disordine, lo stivale lasciato lì con noncuranza danno la percezione di quanto sia duro e ingrato il lavoro del pescatore.

We don;t often see seascapes from you, so this is a little treasure. I like the diagonal POV and the fishing nets in the FG set the context and the atmosphere. Lovely colours and textures, congratulations.
Have a lovely Saturday

Foarte frumoasa poza, un fel de poezie moderna...si deloc vesela....ca sa nu spun foarte trista....ce dracu ar mai putea fi vesel in tara asta? Poate doar toti politicienii nostri, dar absolut toti,in varianta Tepes-Voda.
