A Pointless Port

At harbour’s mouth (the Pool): 21st Feb 2020

The port of Great Yarmouth isn’t as busy as it was 100 years back, or even 50 years), unable to take the container ships and its fishing industry lost. Now its main business is the support and supply of North Sea Rigs. Sad facts echoed in this forlorn vista.

    But oh what she must have been in her day. I really like this photo. Something about the rust really makes it feel powerful somehow..

  3. I love the composition of this one. The lines are wonderful. I can just see the ghosts of days-gone-by when this would have been a bustling port. Nicely done!

    For some reason I can hear fog horns looking at the photo. Its a poignant photo somehow haunting.
