| Photo Diary | Creak to The Sea

If you pay €2.50 and hop aboard Tram 1 from Infante in Porto, you will creak and creep in a most leisurely of rickety ways along the riverside for about 30 minutes. Then, you will end up here.

There is something about tools of a trade that I find captivating. In this case fishing nets, ropes and baskets caught my eye. Maybe it is partly to do with the colours or textures or even the smell of the sea sun drying upon them. I think that it is more about the sense of the person that uses them. The earnest hope, diligence and skills learned over years resonates.
