Week 43 #43 Tools Of The Trade

My photography club several weeks ago took a field trip to Tarpon Springs, FL.  Tarpon Springs became famous in the late 1800’s as the hub for harvesting Sponges from the gulf waters off the coast.  Many Greek citizens immigrated to the area to work on the ships. Tarpon Springs is now home to one of the largest Greek communities in the United States.  We didn’t realize the day we chose to visit,  happened to coincide with their once monthly Greek Festival.  We had hoped to have a beautiful sunset along the pier waters that evening but, alas Mother Nature wasn’t at her finest.  Instead we concentrated on the multiple festive scenes around us.  Greek musicians provided us with continual background music while we wandered the streets.  I captured this man with his “Tool Of The Trade”, a beautiful Bouzouki.
