Photographer's Note

Little boats bobbing on the water whilst tourists and locals alike laze in the cafes and restaurants surrounding its perimeter. rnrnThe city of Arrecife is the capital of Lanzarote. Arrecife grew during the sixteenth century to become the main port on the island in an era when sea trade was of immense importance.rnrnThe population of Arrecife is now about 60,000. Although it is the business centre of Lanzarote, like the rest of the island, it is very dependent on the tourist industry.rnrnrn rnrn
