Photographer's Note

Hi all,

[Photo scene info & motivation]
This photo is a leap in time in my holiday, I planned to post photo's chronologically, but by posting this one, I've ruined the plan..
Well so be it :)

This photo is taken on the last day of our visit too Paros, we we're waiting for the ferry to go to Syros. This holiday we experienced Greek ferry's are often late..but this time (the ferry was late 1-1,5 hour) I couldn't mind, else I had to spend the time around sunset inside the ferryboat. And now we were still in the harbour.

We we're waiting inside the gates at Paroikia (the capital of Paros) harbour. The waiting gates look awefull, a bit like a jail, because the fences have bars, but from between the bars you can make some photo's. I made this one with my telelens attached, easier to avoid the bars in the frame.

It can be noted that the church from my last photo, can be seen in this photo, under the sun, a bit too the left.

Decisive moment? Why? Well this man was walking around freely in the harbour, while we where behind bars. I took photo's in some directions while this man walked around. I returned with the camera on my eye to this scene and saw the man sitting there. I took one photo, turned into another direction again, came back and he was walking again.
He sat down for only a matter of seconds..Why? I don't know :)
I liked his posture and clicked. I'm glad I did, because the scene was not as static as it looks like..
