The Fish

By William Butler Yeats

Although you hide in the ebb and flow

Of the pale tide when the moon has set,

The people of coming days will know

About the casting out of my net,

And how you have leaped times out of mind

Over the little silver cords,

And think that you were hard and unkind,

And blame you with many bitter words.

I like your posts because you can always capture and transmit, with a click, the intensity of the moment and the complexity of the situation. Thanks for sharing! :D

You're welcome! 
Very interesting, I have to take a closer look at your blogs this afternoon.
Thanks for sharing! I always want to travel, but am happy I can see things through other photographer's lenses. I like the story format of the series of pics in the blogs.
Keep up the beautiful work!

Interesting set....I often wonder what the people who are being photographed are thinking? maybe by now, they probably just tune the tourists out while they go about their lives :) The gentleman in the first photo has such kind eyes...well captured!

I make myself the same question. I always think they must be thinking - "another crazy guy with a camera". smile Thanks G.

Wonderful series, as always, Amigo! 
I especially love the edits in #1 & #6!
Love your creative perspectives & clarity!
Were all those drying fish pretty smelly?

ps....and who could resist rocking out with the Marvelettes!?!?!?!

Antonio Gil Replied to Jay Boggess 11 months, 2 weeks ago

Thanks my friend. Actually, there wasn't much smell because there as a gentle breeze coming from the sea bringing the good sea fragrance.

Jay Boggess Replied to Antonio Gil 11 months, 2 weeks ago

Maybe the breeze is strong enough to keep the flies away, too!!

You should make a 'dead-fishes-of-the-world-project'. I remember some pic's of fish from the faroe also - and I'm sure you have also some fish-pics from Kyrgyztan and Georgia...smile

Great shots and story to go with them. What is their attitude towards photographers taking photos here?

11 months, 2 weeks ago Edited
Antonio Gil Replied to Kevin Wenning 11 months, 2 weeks ago

They are very kind people. No problem whatsoever, and I usually ask people if I can take their picture. Thanks Kevin

Intriguing and thoughtful shots! Effective angle in #3 and the last shot is rich with color, texture and human interest.

#5 and #6 are my favorite two even though they are quite documentary in nature they are also quite artistic to me .

#1 Awesome picture! I always thought that working in the rice fields was hard work, but now I am wondering. After seeing them lay the fish to dry, it seems this is even harder work than the rice fields. An amazing set up.

It must been very similar. These people spend hours in that crouched position. Life isn't easy for some. Thank you dear friend
