Dock Gate Mechanism - Greenland Dock - 26.1.2009

Dock Gate Mechanism - Greenland Dock - 26.1.2009
As with tug Sammy, this originally had a serious blue colour cast. Having spent some time trying to correct it, I decided the best option was to go into b&w, which certainly looks better.

Interesting picture and the first time I have seen this kind of dock gate mechanism.

A London fence this time - from the days when I was senior enough to move 20 or 30 minutes from my lunch hour from one day to the next, so I could go for a wander down to the former dockyards of Rotherhithe.
HFF all! If I don't respond to your contributions, it will be because we have a family 'do' this weekend and we are already up to our eyes in catering arrangements!

Strangely suggestive, like Alfred Hitchcock's trains disappearing into their tunnels. HFF.

Hmm - not quite as much motion as trains in tunnels - but I think I know what you are suggesting. HFF Steve.

Now that's a very intersting fence- B&W is the perfect choice! HFF, Phil!

I think that if I hadn't had the problem with the blue colour cast, I wouldn't have discovered how good B&W looked. HFF Gudrun.

I wonder if it had the railings round it when it was a working piece of dockyard equipment, opening and closing the lock gates several times a day. I bet it didn't! HFF Ms.W.

Agree with Ms.W! ;-D

Interesting place, b/w was the right choice!

Although the London docks are largely redeveloped, there are enough relics of their past to make them interesting places to wander around. HFF Dida.

Perhaps I should try mono more often! Thanks for your good wishes! It's a step(ish) grand-daughter's 18th. (ish because relationships around her have changed, yet again!) HFF and a peaceful w/e - Have your carnivals finished? We have a huge one in Lewes and a smaller one in our town - but they call them bonfire parades.

Cracking industrial mono Phil, works a treat. HFF :)

As you will have gathered, it was all due to an odd camera malfunction which turned everything blue.
HFF, Ben.
