Eye see you!

By alistairfarrugia    
A couple of traditional Maltese boats (Luzzu), with the one in the foreground clearly showing a pair of "eyes". Quoting from wikipedia, "...(t)hese eyes may be the modern survival of an ancient Phoenician custom (also practiced by the ancient Greeks); they are sometimes (and probably inaccurately) referred to as the Eye of Horus or of Osiris." If I remember correctly, the eyes are believed to "help" protect the fishermen while they are out at see.

Critique and modifications welcome!

That's exactly why I submitted this upload for today. Loved the colours, though in hindsight I think the picture's a stop or half over-exposed.
