I arrived in the small town of Eceabat, across the river from Çanakkale near the historic sites of Troy and Gallipoli, at the end of the day. We took a little walk around town and made our way to a small pier where the local fisherman were wrapping up their day. Not seen in the picture were the cats who had assembled to see if they could score a few pieces of fresh fish for their own dinner. These men were intrigued by us and probably wondered why we were so interested in them. With a lot of hand gestures as our only communication tool, we spent about half an hour ¨talking¨ to them and watching them go about their daily routine. I caught a shot of this man bringing in his net to store it on the pier for the night. This small glimpse into village fishing life while traveling through Turkey is this week’s Suh-Weet shot!
