The Aberdeen

The Aberdeen
The Aberdeen is an old fishing boat that once upon a time was going to be restored at a pleasure cruiser aboard. The owners ran out of funds and it has been left to rot in the mudflats of the River Medway ever since.

There is another story, that the fishing vessel was bought up by the breaker’s yard at Bloors Wharf and stripped of metal for the resale value. The hull itself was left to rot, and dutifully has done exactly that for the last 35 years or so. Wild parties used to be held here when the hull was in better condition, and on occasion police had to be called. A local history website suggests that the hull was sold to a local resident who was told to move it on. This was rather an expensive request; his response was to cut holes into it so that it could not be moved.

Whatever, it's a nice scenery, isn't it? See PiP for color!

Reminded me on Galeb and on a beautiful song about an old decaying ship.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb-mJU8YWlQ

Lyrics (the closest i could get) ;)

"It happend long time ago,when days were hard.
You're left alone..abandoned ship.."

You are torn apart, like a pumpkin, my leut
Even the fishing net is destroyed, my leut
You're left alone, abandoned ship

Tears are gone, from your body, my leut
And the memories are coming, my leut
You're left alone, sad and quiet

The ships are the same as people
They give their life to the sea
The ships are the same as people
They give two tears for one tear

You are torn apart, like a pumpkin, my leut
Even the fishing net is destroyed, my leut
You're left alone, abandoned ship."

Belles images de cette épave avec de belles couleurs pour l'image [PIP] alors que le N&B dramatise avec bonheur la scène... Je serais bien embarrassé si je devais choisir entre les deux

Für solche Motive hast Du einen scharfen Blick. Ich erinnere mehrere solcher Boote und Bootswracks aus Südamerika ...
Immer wieder beeindruckend !

Schiffswracks und deren Geschichte faszinieren einfach, leider bestehen die auch nicht ewig und verschwinden mit der Zeit, auch ein Grund, sie zu dokumentieren. Vielen Dank!

Mimmmimmiii! Ich fand die Farbe schöner und der Hang zum HDR war wohl auch dem Licht geschuldet...:))))

Two fantastic images of this old wreck. I like the B/W version - the tones are lovely and the details are superb.

The colour version in the PiP however, is just amazing, especially the clouds and colours in the sky and the boat..!!

Outstanding work Berny!

Beeindruckende Komposition! Tolle Wolken! Mir gefält das Farbild etwas besser, es hat mehr Vordergrund und das Boot ist nicht so mittig. S/W wäre evtl. mit weniger Vordergund und mehr Himmel ausgewogener.
