This is especially for Mick, who commented on the rusty bollards on Whitby's West Pier in my previous upload, and was taken later in the week on another stroll down the pier. On this occasion, there was a chap re-painting the white railings which run down both sides of the pier. I do hope he didn't continue after I'd left and paint these delightfully rusted bollards!
Used a wide aperture to help throw out of focus the old stone lighthouse on the East Pier in the background.
