IJmuiden: ropes and fishing nets

We like to vist to the harbor of IJmuiden, I’ve shared this often on my blog. On a weekday such as today there is a lot of activity going on and when we’re lucky there are piles of ropes and fishing nets on the dock. The picture above is a partial view of three of those piles.

pink and green ropes

What I like to do when I see those piles of nets and ropes is to wander around and see what resonates with me. I seldom take a picture of the piles themselves like I did now, I like looking at the details, at the play of the lines and colors, the entanglement.

green and pink rope with rusty lock

In the image above I appreciate the colors and the element of rust, which gives it a bit of a rough edge.

red and white nets

This image has a bright pop of red and a tiny bit of blue. The patterns of the fishing nets are clearly visible.

white ropes

What I like about this picture is the monochromatic feel and the tiny pops of colour in the front rope.

yellow and black rope

This must be my favorite: I like the semi-order it reflects, all the ropes and nets are tied together tightly and I love the pops of red.
