Slide Scan Project : A tough life

The life of a sponge seller looks to be a difficult one. What you can’t see out of frame is the stiff competition. Lining the entire harbor of the Greek island of Rhodes were about 50 or so peddlers of these unique sponges. At night, all of these vendors had their areas lit up making a stroll down around there after dinner quite a magical one.

    Where did you take this? I see the sign is in English but I can’t figure out where this scene would fit in.

    At any rate, fantastic capture of daily life – excellent processing to make it look vintage.ReplyCancel
