Lens artists photo Challenge #113: A Labour of Love

I was a bit lost for this one, and then I recalled these two images I took in Fethiye a few years ago. Two people who seemed happy and engrossed in their labours.

First we have a glass blower:

And now a chef who I saw proudly assembling his fish, first boning, then adding veg and garnish:

  1. Amy

    Excellent photo selections for labor of love. Take special skills and patience.

  2. Yep! Two good ones, Sue 🙂 🙂

  3. Oh, I loathe boning fish which is why I always buy deboned fillets and never order turbot in a restaurant!!

  4. Excellent portraits of each man doing what he loves best. It shows in their concentration which you have captured very well.

  5. Oh, I’m glad you found these – lovely.

  6. Two fine choices Sue! Love the chef especially as he seems so focused on his work. I agree, deboning fish requires total concentration too. Not my favorite thing 😀 (the work, not the eating LOL)

  7. Excellent choices. Several years ago I visited a Rojo’s Cafe in Lambertville, New Jersey. I ordered a cappuccino which the barista skilfully prepared. But when he had completed his milk art, he didn’t like the result. I was amazed that he dumped the whole cup into the sink and started over.
