One image - the whole story - fishing for two in the Yafa port.

avatar

Another "one image - the whole story" post and this time my photostory is from the old Yafa port, where many old fishermen love to sit in the "silence" and to hope to catch something for dinner. Actually, there is no silence in the old port anymore. Renewed, rebuild, sold to the fat wallets. Life continues for all those who don't have much and who have too much already. Yes "too much" is very dependent on the personal point of view. From my point of view - this cat is having nothing - the only light hope for some small and bony fish.

Great capture my friend. It sadden me that those cats was waiting for food too. Life is harsh nowadays. Not only people are struggling to live but animal had to fight for their life too.

That one picture definitely conveys a feeling and emotion. It looks very peaceful indeed, though I suspect if you were to have pulled back some to see the rest of the chaos it'd be less peaceful.

At least the cat know's what's what.

there are many street cats in the port and actually they get a lot of small fished but still always look very hungry :-))

Fishing down at the ports can be hazardous to you if there is a tribe of cats lurking. Normally, docile and a tad lazy, they spring to action when the line is snagged. I watched a fisherman cleaning his fish on the docks, where they have a table to accommodate them and there were a dozen cats and pelicans vying for the same scraps.

Of course the strong win out or attack.

Such a peaceful existence, or it once was, Victor. Life was simple. Fish and bring home dinner and they have even taken away the basic way of living, or, have tarnished it. The picture defies reality. Reality is merely an illusion. although a very persistent one.

Hey Denise. Thank you for the beautiful words.
Yesterday morning i was in the other southern city port and saw many fishermen just standing in line, but were no cats around. no one. It was the new port and seems like cats are not welcome there :)
it was strange not to see them.
