photoblog image Boatside

Boatside

Another scan from an old colour slide just like yesterdays image this was taken at Filey in the 70's, once again probably with my old Praktica.

I have several more of these and will post them if time allows.

By the way two of my colleagues from my Camera Club post regularly on Flickr and it is usually very good stuff, perhaps you might like to take a look sometime. Phil is at http://www.flickr.com/photos/philtapp/ and Brian is at http://www.flickr.com/photos/briannegus  .  Brian is extremely visually impaired and yet if you look at his work you will wonder how he does it.  He is deeply involved in a local charity for people with his disability and also belongs to the Flickr group for people who are blind and visually impaired photographers.

I especially like the rope burns in the fresh paint, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ray.

that rope is making a mess of the fresh paint
Brian Walbey: At least it must have been a working boat at the time Tony.
Interesting and vivid. Thanks for the Flickr link to Brian Negus.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, I hope you enjoyed seeing some of Brians work on Flickr.
Thanks for the Flickr links Brian. That site is blocked from the Mad House so I'll check it tonight. No sign of the age of this image but I do like the chafe mark from the mooring rope. Good angles with the planking and the rope.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Alan. Enjoy the Flickr links tonight, there is some good stuff on both sights.
I had a look at Brian's pictures. Just goes to show what you can do if you really want to. Like the boat pic by the way
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill. I was astounded when Brian first joined our club and I looked at his Flickr, he uses a monocular at the club to follow presentations and so on.

Great colour the rope is damaging the paint
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage, I think this was very much a working boat when iItook the picture.
It must have been moored up for some time Brian...judging by the rope damage. Good picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.

Interesting image, Brian. Was it a Scottish boat? smile (blue and white) I'll have to check out the Flikr pages sometime, they look interesting.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mia. No this boat was one of several drawn up on the beach at Filey which is in Yorkshire on our North East coast. I hope you enjoy the Flickr pages.
I've now had a chance to look at those Flickr sites; absolutely amazing, especially Brian's site! There's nothing at all to indicate any visual impairment. Please pass on my congratulations to him.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I have passed on your comments to Brian.
