The beach sheds at Bridlington were well bolted.
The poles in front of the doors were white but each reflected the colour from the adjacent door.
I thought rather pretty.

Walter (gajewski) made me a happy bunny yesterday with his precious user award.... THANKYOU!

A very clever point of view. This angle really emphasizes the row of colors. It's hard to believe that the poles are white. They look painted.

I like your point of focus and depth of field, Barabara, the effect on the colours down the line is excellent. The locks make an added feature, as does that reflected colour on the white. Those poles remind me of the chalky rock you can buy in the sweet shops around there. A very good piece of work.

Wonderful!! Can easily imagine this on a canvas hanging on the wall. Sad to say, think at the moment your title may sum up summer 2013 as well as the previous one - let's hope that's not the case!
