Fantastic shot JM! The composition is just perfect. I love the sailboat and the ship on the water and the waves of the ocean coming in in the background.

It seems as if the sea had brought to the edge of the beach after a shipwreck.

Legal or illegal sales? (Why do I ask; I'm not going to report to the police!)

For you in any case, it helped you for a very nice photo!

Marc said...

This is an esthetically great shot with lots of partitioned details. I like the ocean liner in one window and the sailing boat in another. It's one to look at for a while and just enjoy.

Sharon said...

Wow, what a spectacular view these wooden carvings have!

The railing looks almost like a window to the water! Nice shot.

JM said...

Mahalo for the visit, I love your site! And this photo is very neat, I love these little "beach shops", and I heartily approve of the entrepreneurial spirit!

Beautiful photo JM...I can smell the salty breeze :)

I cannnot tell you enough how I envy you this image. We lack anything of artful here.

Virginia said...

Well on the portal I thought it was anorexic sunbathers. Whew. Now that I see it's statues, they are lovely and the surf in the background is very nice JM

Illegal? Oh well!

Just scrolling back to an older beautiful post of yours to let you know that I appreciate your very regular comments on my blog. It's makes it more fun putting all the work into the blog, knowing that there's people who like your stuff and show it through their comments. I'm not so much into the awards business, just like you, but I guess this comes close. Thanks JM!
