He's the one who decides prices. He knows everybody and everybody knows him. They communicate by small movements by the eyes or hands. It's a language in it's own right (?)

Your photos reminds me of the fish market that uses to be in manhattan. It was an nice place to get fresh fish in the morning at the best price. Sometimes I wish it was still in manhattan.

In new york, if you go after the big buyers finish getting their fish generally around 6-8am. The market would let anyone buy small amount of what ever they want. No need to buy 10 boxes like the restaurants and supermarkets.

Coming out from the auction is kind of refreshing. At this time of the day the fishermen go home to sleep, having worked all night. Hungry as wolves

Many of them buy something to eat. Much, cheap, good. Open between 05.00 and 11.00. And if you got trouble in mind - they'll listen. A rare gift

Another evening will come. Cormorants at the end of the oldest pier of the fish harbour. Gotha River. Had fun working with these pictures. Hope you found a picture to like

Nice series. I like looking at "everyday" people and things from faraway places.

My words, vv - I like the series too and am always waiting for shots like these, no matter where they have been taken

shoturtle,

Well, make them start it up again ; using whatever means you find necessary

Seems it's about the same procedure all over the world.

Only been there once, at the auction I mean. Next time I'll try to buy some managable quantities, perhaps without walking aound with cameras. At saturday afternoon it happens that they give away for free instead of throwing to the gulls

//T

There is another room beside the main hall, with shrimps, crabs and crayfish. Seems less formal. I'll try to buy 3 hectograms of shrimps just for myself
