True love for fishing :)

True love for fishing :)
This photo was taken in Corfu back in 2002 when Mariam and I went for our first holidays together. The reason why I am posting it here now is because I saw a photo in Anthony Le Bourlier's photostream that reminded me of this photo.

We stayed at a small hotel that was on the beach and every morning when we had breakfast we saw this fisherman fishing for calamari and crab. He sold most of what he caught to our hotel. What we did not find out until later was that he was the owner of the hotel. He had rented it to someone else so he could do what he loved to do, and that was fishing :)

'Dirk', Ragnheidur, Demetrius Chryssikos, Ester and 2 other people have particularly liked this photo

Thanks John :) I love calamari and we often buy calamari for our girls when we go out for dinner because they love it too :) I guess what he was fishing here is much bigger than what we are used to get in Vancouver.

Takk Ragga :) Því miður þá eru þessar gömlu myndir mínar eingöngu góðar svona litlar á skjá. Ég fékk skilaboð um daginn þar sem ég var beðinn að hafa samband við auglýsingastofu sem vildi fá eina mynd frá mér. Þessi mynd átti að vera á stóru ljósaskilti í Leifsstöð og því var ég að sjálfsögðu mjög spenntur. Því miður þá var þetta ein af gömlu myndunum sem ég skannaði inn í svo lítilli upplausn á sínum tíma og því gat ég ekki boðið þeim hana. Ég á filmuna en þeir þurftu þetta strax. Ohh það hefði verið svo gaman fyrir mig að vera með eina mynd í Leifsstöð :)
