Great shot Bill. Have walked past this many a time and never thought to photograph it. Well seen and captured.

There's a weird, non-human figure in the cab.
The ladder up the tracks is a perfect lead-in to take the eye on a journey of discovery up, up , then out through the jib.

Interesting, Bill. Could do with a bit of refurbishment I think.

Nice image Bill, well seen and good mono. Just shows what sea air can do to metal and paint work, one hopes the corrosion is no more than skin deep.

A well used piece of machinery. I too, like Malc, see a strange figure in the cab! 😃👍

If it works, why bother with what it looks like! Good capture, with all the flaking paint and rust.

Now I can see it too, having never noticed before Blush
I checked it out in the original. It appears to be splashes of paint with a couple of deliberate daubs above.
Just add the signature 'Picasso woz 'ere OK?' and it could be worth a mint WinkWinkWinkWinkWink

Yup...there's someone in there. It looks robotish, with lights on. Great image and well captured Bill.
