Still Marine Life

By NDODS    
Sticking with the theme of Architecture, I thought that I would add a nautical twist. This image was captured under the relatively new Medway bring which allows thousands upon thousands to leave and enter this wonderful County of hours.

Thank you so very much for your wonderful comments and messages following yesterday's upload. My apologies go to Leon for uploading a rather dull image GrinGrinGrin I shall endeavour to rectify that in the forthcoming weeks or so. A special mention goes to Netta for presenting me with her most appreciated User Award.

Today I shall be expecting bedlam as a whole host of family members descend upon our new home. One such family member shall be bringing the new addition 'Kismet' spelt with a 'z' in order that I can use the name 'Kizzy' if I wish. "I cannot even begin to think what people may think if I started bellowing out 'Kissy' at the top of my lungs?".

I hope that you all have a great day whatever that may bring.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

like the way that the clear contours of the bridge draws your eye into the distance, together with the colourful barges.

Interesting viewpoint over beached houseboats and all the paraphernalia about them and over the estuary and under the modern communication links.
Have a nice if boisterous day with the family.

The colours in the foreground really stand out so well, doubtless set off by the duller tones in the bg! Still smiling over your amusing intro! Have a lovely time today.

Two different worlds, two different ways of life, one above the other. This is brilliant.

Great subject matter Nathan, showing that you are certainly no stick in the Mud.

This has always appeared cluttered from the bridge as I have driven over!!!! Now a view from the floor as it was. Confirms my first appraisal, Nathan. Love the inclusion of the bridge.
28 Dec 2012 11:42AM
Great details, so that you can see many things in this photo, even the greenery (algae, lichens etc) that grows due to moisture on the sides of the vessel.
Have a good day too Nathan.
28 Dec 2012 11:57AM
