Photographer's Note

Roofs of Vis Town

Vis is an island in central Dalmatia. Of all the inhabited Croatian islands, it is the farthest from the coast. It has an area of 90 km2 and a population of about 3600 inhabitants (2001). The main economic activities are agriculture (especially wine production), fishery and, without surprise, tourism. The two main settlements are Vis (or sometime called Vis Town to avoid confusion) located in a protected bay on the north-east of the island, and Komiža at the western end. Historically, Vis Town resulted from the merging of two smaller settlements, Luka and Kut.

Regarding this photo, it shows the houses and roofs of western Vis Town (Luka) close to the ferry dock. It’s perhaps a rather not-so-original/conventional picture, but I never resist to this type of mosaic/patchwork shot when the occasion pops up. And it happened in many places over the years. Kind of creativity on the automatic pilot I suppose.
