Sometimes, the images just happen, or appear when you least expect them.

The history of the place:
We're in Nafpaktos - a small town in the bay of Patras. If you are interested in history, this is the site of the famous battle of Lepanto from 1571 (where Cervantes lost one arm and the Ottoman empire - the dominance in the Mediterranean Sea). The main target for photos is the Rio - Antirio bridge which lincks Peloponnese to the mainland.(you can see in the distance).

Problem 1: turns out that the bridge is lit up on HOLIDAYS ONLY (each time I ask, each time they tell me and each time I forget).

Problem 2: a thunderstorm that can blow your mind away (a shame that at that moment I didn't know how to photograph them, buuuut, another time).

The story of the shot:
This morning before leaving the hotel my mother and I go for souvenirs. I stop to snap at least what can be seen from the bridge (because it's still raining). Then I saw this child - fishing with his father and he seemed very enthusiastic, despite the rain. In Greece - it's like this - the child is introduced to the trade of the parents the moment when he/she could walk. As was this little fisherman. Father pulled away for a few seconds and shot this moment.
