Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns on a Ship

I always call them ropes and then get corrected, “they’re not ropes, they’re lines.” Ropes, on a ship, are called lines. These lines are on the ships at Steveston’s Annual Ship Festival. And now that I see how they are so carefully arranged, tied or coiled into beautiful patterns, I can see exactly why they call them lines.
