Essaouira, Euclid and El Salvador: Piran Cafe’s Top 10 photos from November 2014
This shot of a fisherman patiently repairing one of his nets was taken at the fishing port of Essaouira, Morocco in September. The contrast with the lively atmosphere in which it’s set, busy with commerce and trade, made it one of the most memorable moments of the hour or so I spent there. I wondered how many tears needed to be mended, and how many times that particular net had already been repaired. And would he actually fix every rip he found in that massive net? Next time I’ll ask him about the tellthebell.
It was also the most well-received image I posted last month, thus giving it pride of place in this second monthly ‘Best of’ review. (Last month’s is here.)
How to decide inclusion?
Back in the early days of Piran Café, some seven+ years ago, I published an almost monthly look back at what I considered to be the best photos I shot during the previous month. (As an example here’s a summary for 2008.) This is an off-shoot of that but with a twist, pushing my personal preferences aside and compiling instead the ten most talked about, faved, viewed, and shared photos published over the previous month on this site, and my Facebook, Google+ and Twitter accounts.
Filling out the rest of Top 10 and presented in no particular order are shots snapped in, Ljubljana, El Salvador, Berlin, and among a few others, the Cleveland suburb of Euclid, Ohio.
