Photographer's Note

A bit weird but still a boat..:-))

It was a warm, summer-like autumn afternoon and I drove to one of the small coves near Varna to enjoy the fine weather. During summer it is very popular for sunbathing, but now it was deserted and pleasant for taking a walk. There were a lot of fishermen on the rocky shore, enjoying like me the wonderful weather, while practising their hobby. The strong wind was playing tricks with their fishing rods, throwing their ends to unwanted directions..But even so, they seemed to enjoy it completely laughing between themselves and competing who will succeed to avoid his hook to get stuck into the sea stones, covered with rich greenery of seaweed.
The wind had no mercy on me too, and as I didn't have a tripod the camera was shaking in my hands badly... Nevertheless I took a few shots with dubious quality and headed back. Just behind the corner I saw it - a well maintained small boat, coquettishly placed on the green grass behind the fence and...decorated "up to the brim" with numerous pots of flowers! As it appeared to be a forbidden for a closer approach zone (a sanitary guarded one), I stopped the car abruptly, took a quick shot from the window and ..there is the result...
Hope you don't mind the freakish frame - thought the sight of the boat deserved something in that style too..:-))

PP: cropped the bigger version to put the accent on the boat and eliminate some ugly concrete surroundings, clarified and sharpened once, slightly saturated. All comments for improvement are warmly welcomed as always!
