Photo Hunt - Monthly


The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is monthly. Here are a couple of concrete barges that have been left to rot at the side of the Thames for decades. The photo was taken at high tide. Tides having a monthly cycle I thought it would rooughly fit with the theme!

That's really an eyesore but eventually it would become a paradise for fishes. :P

Thanks they are not very pretty but I'm glad they are there

I really like the photo - very sculptural for old rotting barges. And I'm so impressed with all the cool things people are coming up with for this hard theme. Have a great weekend.

Yah I was going to say they kinda ugly the place up but why are you glad that they're there? Do they prevent something from coming onshore or something?

Happy weekend.

For me they make interesting subjects but in the past they had been used as shore defences. Before thatthey would have been used in WWII

I think the monthly tides is a great idea for the theme. That's too bad that the barges have been left to rot.

Poor Spotty had his monthly bath this morning. His misery was well documented. He is almost dry and contented now.

THanks everyone

I hope that sea creatures can use these barges as a alternate home. I read before that sunken ships can be transformed into a habitat for fish.

A very clever stretch of the theme! And those old barges certainly create very artistic shapes in the water!

Nice take on the theme. Enjoy your weekend!

Tides. . .I'd have never thought of that, but then I'm about 1000 miles from the closest thing effected by tides. Great take and thanks for dropping by my blog and seeing what causes the tides.

It's such a great interpretation of the theme.

Happy weekend!

Marta said...

Ah... I see we had the same thought but took it differently. I went with beach shots but you were able to show a very unique shot of a wreck. And in a river! What an interesting history of the barge. Great take on the theme.

Wait, let me get this straight. Those are concrete boats?

Perhaps an eyesore but a great shot.

Pat said...

Certainly an eyesore!!

Lovely photo :-)

Great take on this week's theme!

Imagine the sum total of the 'junk' left rotting on our planet - frightening!

Anyway . . . I won't rant . .

Have a super weekend.
