Woman Scraping Scales Off A Fish

The woman was scrubbing the fish's scale in Sarahama harbor

A woman with a scarf around her neck was working at Sarahama Harbor. In front of her was a freshly landed fish, probably a type of porgy, and a brush in the woman's hand. She was just in the middle of scrubbing the fish's scales off with the brush.

The scales looked very hard. Probably to prevent the hard scales from hurting her hands. The hand that wasn't holding the brush was wearing a pair of gloves. Removing the scales did not seem to be an easy task. She scrubbed relentlessly with the brush again and again. And the sound of the woman's scrubbing echoed through the quiet harbor.
