Default You got to get near...

Fishing trawlers unloading their haul. We spotted quite a few aliens sporting cameras and big lenses as if

they were out at sea looking for their Melville.

To get close shots, one needs to get close!! Be amongst the people. Be one with them. Don't matter none

if you sport a white lens or a black one. Get close, if you want to capture the spirit of the place.

Hi Fahim
Close enough for me to smell the melted odors of fish and diesel!
I love fishermen and their boats! A world of colors you chose not to show ;)
But still, the odor remains… good shot.

This man has such a friendly welcome, you'd buy something even if you weren't hungry. Thanks Fahim for sharing.

Nicolas, what a wonderful surprise to hear from you.

Yes, my friend I too love boats and the fishermen. The small boats, the small fishermen. (:

Our best regards to the family, team, friends and, of course, yourself.

There are times when even though I could get much closer I refrain from doing so.
