Fishermen of Jisr Zarqa or the power of a single image (not a series of photographs).

I arrived at this fisherman's village beach at around 17PM after the wonderful live performance event of my friend's band in Pardes Hana. The GiG was full of joy as usual with many drinks and beers, despite the very hot day. I needed this relaxation after a long and stressful week. But there is the end to everything - so this week is ended as well and the weekend is here and a few days of holidays are arranged exactly after the weekend, so, I'm ok now.
So the beach of the village wasn't empty and the sea furiously sent waves to the shore. But this lagune was quiet, all the fisherman's boats already moored, and all the fishermen went home, except these two, still worked on their net. The wark with the net is very painstaking and requires patience. One can't leave it as is after fishing and must prepare it for the early-early next morning.

Here are some fragments I did from this image - some of you who use Hive on your smartphone, just can see these small details.

The sights and sounds that I am familiar with, Tangles in the nets, mall pieces of stone with holes drilled in them fastened to it. I have to wonder how many hours are spent doing that, or preparing for the next use.

The long hours and the skills to fish are well practiced. Real-life visited. Thank you.

The picture is worth more than a thousand words, Victor.
