Checking the nets is very important, to make sure 'they work' the next time

Everyone's so involved...busy day...you caught the action.
Picturit: They do a lot of teamwork and it makes the work goes faster. We had a great time watching all the activity in the harbour.
Astrid.
This is the tedious part of the job... you caught it nicely - I love the colors of the nets!
I like the music "George" set to his video / slideshow! Thanks for sharing!
Picturit: I often look for nice videos of Malta. I gives more the 'total view', than only one pictures at the time..
I will dig in my archives from Malta for a few weeks smile

Très jolie photo prise sur le vif. Ce n'est pas facile de réparer tous ces filets.
Picturit: Thank you. Checking those nest needs a good eye and I am sure they know how to fix them too.

Belle scène !
JP
Picturit: Thank you, JP.
Astrid.
I love that you have the bigger scene from that day in Marsaxlokk, MLMA. It was totally worth the trip for this fishing village alone!
Picturit: It was worth it indeed and we saw a lot of beautiful things.. Loved to see these fishermen doing the job together.
Astrid.
Great capture of these skilled workers Astrid!
Picturit: I love the fact that they all worked together and they sure know what to do.

I wonder if the nets have to have regulation size Euro-holes Astrid?
Picturit: I think they have an office in Brussels and twice a year the officials (plural) go to Malta with their 'check-the-holes-measuring-sticks'..and measure up the holes, after that they go back to the office and have at least 4 meetings before they figure it out.. Meanwhile they will have an official press conference about the fact how it comes that Malta fishermen catch more fish than those poor people in Greece and (the rest I will keep for myself).......

Picturit: I know... they are like children, you take care of them.

I am impressed that you can write upside down Astrid. The water sounds good in the video. It really conveys a sense of 'being there'. No wonder you had such. Good time in Malta.
Picturit: I had to turn over the laptop though to write upside down...
We had a fabulous time in Malta. A unique place.

Yup! Important part of the job.

Na's Dad makes and mends casting nets for all the locals.
Picturit: It is the most important job, they have to trust their nets otherwise there is no food.
It seems that also Na's dad is a man of many trades.
Astrid.
This is a great scene. Please read my comment to Ginnie about my friend.
Picturit: I know that this is a dying trade... the actual repair. We do have many people who pass on the trade. (luckily)
Astrid.
This one, linked with Ginnie's close up, make for a very interesting pair of pictures.
Picturit: It is fun to both have the same scene and having two totally different pictures.
Astrid.
Love the colors and your upside down signature! So clever! (And I'm really loving the ease of just clicking the box to indicate we're not a robot versus having to struggle with those numbers and letters when we leave a comment!)
Picturit: I am glad that those numbers are gone now and it sounds like it is now the same way as 'Blogger' just clicking I am NO a robot... smile
Thank you for your kind words as always, Robin. Have a great weekend.
Astrid.

Inspect and repair the nets. Great shot of these guys going about their business.
Picturit: It was great to see these men doing their job and there were all kinds of objects in the nets. Even small fish caught in the mazes.
Astrid.
Tricky work - must take them hours to sort them out!
Picturit: I think it took them indeed over an hour to get it all sorted out and this was just a 'small' heap of nets.
Astrid.
Nice colors for a vibrant scene...
Picturit: It was fun to see the fishermen all over the place, checking their nets.
Astrid.
"how many men does it take to check the nets? two it seems - the rest are hangers-by."
amusing signature, Astrid.
Picturit: wink.. there are always a lot of 'supervisors' everywhere grin...
Thank you, Ayush, enjoy your weekend.
Astrid.
your boat is upside down Astrid... working the nets look like a great big puzzle
