The Fishing Nets of Port Vendres
Some people go crazy over flowers or art or music. I'm with them on those but I also have a quirkier passion. Ever since I first saw them in 1993, I've gone nuts over the fishing nets of Port Vendres (a small town just down the coast from Collioure). Heaped almost two metres high, their vivid colours faded and bleached by the sun in places, they're a complete visual treat. So, of course, we took plenty of closeups plus a couple more to show this riot of colour in context. These shots really don't do them justice--if you like fishing nets.
