I taken a stroll on Jaffa port this morning, and saw this guy on the corner of the marina, making final touchs on his painting.
What was amazing and amusing to the people passed by, is our almost perfect resemblance: We share same figure & hight and I had a similar checkered (newer)shirt, blue-jeans, and the very-same NB shoes - just without the hat he wore, and no bicycles... also I don't paint like he doe's, and don't know his name - but yet, someone asked if we are related...
I will post more scenes taken today, at this small fishing port.

Painter maps view of the harbor, and you shows his interesting job. All your picture in a light blue color of the domino. A very successful fortografia in excellent quality and color.
צהריים טובים. מפות הצייר להציג הנמל, ואתה מציג עבודה מעניינת שלו. כל התמונה בצבע תכלת של דומינו. Fortografia מוצלח מאוד באיכות צבע מעולה. שלך.

nice the snapshot with the paintner sitting at the edge of the waterfront to paint the opposite shoreline. I like the brilliant light of the day with the details to make the scene even more effective.

I like the dominating blue here. A nice way to show this artist at work. I like the way he has kept all the tools in this small area. Nice place for painting. Good lighting, colors and sharpness.
Royaldevon (29509) 2012-04-13 14:02
I do like close-ups, which give such close details of the subject. We feel almost to be looking over his shoulder and sharing his art. In addition, we have a fine context for the work.
The sun looks strong, with deep shadows and highlights on the water, but you have controlled it well.
My warm regards,
pierrefonds (56945) 2012-04-13 16:23
You have captured well the action of the artist. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the artist at work. The morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello my dear Ike
An usual subject as you but good image indeed!
So sharp and fresh one to see in Saturday morning here.
Unity of blue color is a good idea.
Thanks for your sharing with your best job and have a nice weekend, best regards,

When I have to make a choice would I the second picture take.
But this is a personal choice.
I like this image with the quiet painter along the water nice made.
Color and presentation are pleasant for look at.
very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

That pretty instant, capturing the artist as he takes his work to life in the port environment, the image has a fantastic light and a beautiful color with these dominant blue. Well done.
Have a nice weekend.

I really like the subject of your photograph, the light reflections, blue colours and the shimmering ripples on the water.
All the best

I plan on retiring very soon and this activity is something I been thinking about taking up again.
I love your POV of this moment, and with great detail to all the surroundings your done well with colors and lighting. Great Job Ike!!

une belle présentation de ce peintre qui a l'air très occupé sur sa toile et sous un soleil de plomb
un bon cadrage
jmdias (55345) 2012-05-10 8:05
I am an amateur painter too but I never tried to produce landscapes in the open air. haha.
nice view of the painter and the scenery around.

this is a lovely and very interesting picture with a good story. It's very well composed with the painter at the side, turned towards a view we can only see in his painting, through his own interpretation. I like very much the way all the information is arranged in the frame. I love the marvellous clarity, bright light and vivid colours. A very pleasant calm scene. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
jcpix (13658) 2012-12-06 19:11
A real life moment well captured, a local artist at work is a great subject and you caught him at a nice moment with the paint stroke. I always enjoy pictures of daily life, especially in different cities and cultures other than my own. Looks to be a great location on the harbor to soak up some sun and be creative. Lovely arrangement.
elenimavrandoni (14249) 2013-03-06 10:56
Hello Ike, nice scene at the Jaffa port, very picturesque with the painter painting a beautiful scene!Funny what you see when you take a stroll!!!
all the best,
mcmtanyel (13375) 2013-08-24 18:43
Every now and then I will photograph someone else photographing with the thought in my head "Who photographs the photographers?" Well, this is a variation on that idea, "Who photographs the painters?" Exquisite light management, we can actually see the details of the painting though it's in the shade.
mirosu (13718) 2013-08-27 21:59
Excellent photo. I like the higher viewpoint and the nice blue colors and of course excellent light making all the nice details visible. The composition with water with reflections in BG is outstanding. Well done. Greetings, Miro.
Kaisa71 (228) 2014-02-12 11:14
This is very nice relaxed and atmospheric shot with nice elements like sea, sunshine, painting, bicycle....good composition and exposure. I would have also liked to see a photo of you and the painter as you guys looked similar :-)
