Salvador Dali

Back in 2015 we were on a caravan trip to Spain and one of our stops was near a town called Cadaques on the Costa Brava. It quickly became one of our favourites and also it appears, was a favourite of Salvador Dali who was born very nearby in Figueres, just inland from Cadaques.

He is obviously well remembered there because he has two statues on the beach within a hundred metres of each other and we even found a meter cupboard! with his portrait on.

I would imagine this was a favourite watering hole of his. You can see the base of his other statue in the top left of this picture

Here is an ‘arty’ shot of his favourite place, Cadaques from the other side of the bay

I had a lot of problems with this picture because it doesn’t look level to me. If I set the beach level then the ‘frame’ looks terribly out of line and vice versa. I think also the frame is not square either so I compromised and made them both wrong. The statues are on the beach that you see through the frame.
