BREAKFAST AT SEA

Not one, not two, but three beautiful creatures frolicking around and giving a show for the small crowd that always gathers on the waterfront on lazy Sunday mornings. A mixed crowd of locals and tourists. The former looking to buy fresh fish off the boats and caiques docked there, and the latter - camera in hand - looking for a unique moment to record on their digital memory gadgets.

It has been 3 years since turtles, myself, and camera availability coincided. So, while the objects of everyone's attention were securing their breakfast, I snapped mercilessly. Almost as if they, I, and the camera would never be in the same place at the same time ever again.

Once this "mandate" was out of the way, I stood there among the crowd and just watched. And marveled. And wondered whether or not the turtles can sense the attention, the admiration, the commotion they cause.
