Karleen 3

By woolybill1
An early and rapid upload this morning, and no viewing or voting until this evening as we are having a Day Out.

This is the business end of Karleen , indeed I suspect the only part that works at the moment; this theory is supported by some of your comments at the time of Karleen 2 .

Just occasionally my legendary laziness is overcome. I couldn't be bothered to change lenses (I had a standard zoom in the bag) so I just used my two legs to zoom out to my closest focusing point.

You may notice the shiny end to the propeller shaft, the fine condition of the castellated nut and the new split pin. But that the surrounding structure suggests that Karleen won't be going anywhere very soon....

70mm, 1/125th sec @ f4.8, ISO 200

A very nice shot. Yes, the contrast of old and new is surprising. I really like the mono treatment - turns this into quite an arty abstract and brings out the textures well.

As always a nice shot Bill.
I have a simple theory about the shiny castellated nut and split pin, I think someone nicked the cover.

Have a nice trip.

I see many old boats,but not many with the propeller still fitted.Definately a case of the old and new here.Good texture in the surrounding structure.Like the ''bites'' out of the blade too.A star turn here Bill.

Great shot Bill and nice to see she has at least one new bit on her. Unfortunately from what I can remember of your previous uploads if she moves she will sink, or is it that she is really a submarine in disguise and no-one has noticed.

Ouch, I've taken so many pictures of propellers, thought it was mine! Daft bat.
I love it, needless to say, right up my street (or boatyard).

Beautiful composition and very interesting contrast between the new and the decrepid bits. Works well in B&W.
